PARENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The Midland County ESA has a parent advisory committee that provides input related to the improvement of special education services within Midland County. PAC members participate in the development and modifications of the intermediate school district’s plan, review deviation requests, and give input related to monitoring activities. Members are updated with current changes in federal and state laws, regulations and policies. They are also offered the opportunity to attend in-service training related to topics of interest. PAC members assist special education administrators in disseminating information to parents in the local school district.
The parent advisory committee and its officers consists of parents of students with disabilities and can represent each local school district and public school academy. PAC members are appointed by their local school boards and the Midland County ESA school board and serve a three-year term.
