Citizen's Advisory Council (CAC)
The CAC serves as the school district's Improvement Planning Committee. Members are responsible for sharing information from the Board of Education and the CAC with their representative groups and, conversely, sharing information from their group with the Council. The CAC is also responsible for assisting in the development of student discipline policy as required by the Illinois School Code. Any advice the CAC provides to the Board of Education will be prepared after careful study and research of the topic.
The CAC works with the district to update the Parent Handbook and leads the work of our school community Asset/Needs Assessment.
The CAC meets on the third Wednesday of every month (with a few exceptions) and does not meet in December. Meetings start promptly at 6:30 pm. All CAC meetings will be conducted online via Zoom. CAC representatives will be sent advance notice/reminders with Zoom invitations for each meeting. If you have any questions, please contact Jeanette Barnes at email@example.com.
The CAC shall consist of representatives from:
Parent organizations designee
Parents from each of the five district schools
Village of Forest Park
Board of Education
Community members-at-large as recommended to the Board by the Superintendent
We will be hosting a virtual informational meeting on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:30 pm with more information.
