Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)
The purpose of the JCISD Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is to represent the views of parents with children in special education. The PAC provides input at the Intermediate School District (ISD) level. Input is focused on the ISD Plan for Special Education Services.
Each local school district may nominate a member. These nominations go to the
Michigan Special Education Rules state that each ISD must have a Parent Advisory Committee for special education planning (R340.1838). The rules also describe the membership and responsibilities of the committee.
The Parent Advisory Committee provides input in the development of the ISD Plan for Special Education Services. The ISD Plan describes how special education services will be delivered.
The ISD Plan is a very important document. It must be approved by the Michigan State Board of Education before the ISD can receive funds for special education. The Parent Advisory Committee may file formal objections to the Plan if members feel that the Plan violates provisions of special education law.
