Parent Advisory Committee

The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is a group of parents, representing each local district that works to positively impact the education of children with special needs.

Our Mission

To provide a regular forum for the exchange of ideas and information to support parents and school administrators.  

PAC Will

  • Be a bridge for communication
  • Serve as a point of contact to refer parents to available resources
  • Offer opportunities for parents to learn more about special education
  • Provide an area for feedback from parents

You are invited to participate

PAC meets at 6:00 pm on the second or third Wednesday of most months at the main Eaton RESA building. You will find us at 1790 East Packard Highway, Charlotte, near the corner of Packard Highway and Lansing Road.
