To: Parents / Guardians of Northwood Hills Elementary School
From: Cindy Lewis, PAC Representative and Madeleine Le, Alternate PAC Representative
Re: RISD Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)
The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) offers RISD parents and guardians an opportunity to present
district-wide issues to the Superintendent, top administrators, and representatives of the Board of
Trustees. PAC meetings are designed to address topics of concerns that are of district-wide interest.
PAC membership is limited to one elected representative from each school in the district and one
representative from each early childhood PTA in the RISD Council of PTAs. As your 2007-2006 PAC
Representatives, we will attend the meetings in order to present your district-wide questions and concerns.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Madeleine Le at email@example.com
or use the form below to share your questions and concerns. We will present the issue at a PAC meeting
and then get back to you personally regarding PAC’s response.
Minutes from the PAC meetings will be posted on the district’s website at www.risd.org under About
RISD / FAQs (frequently asked questions.)
The 2007-2008 PAC forms are due on the following dates:
October 9, 2007
January 8, 2008
March 18, 2008
These dates correspond with the PAC Meetings scheduled 2 weeks after the forms are due.
October 23, 2007
January 22, 2008
April 1, 2008
Prior to submitting a question, please make sure you have discussed your concern with the principal and
check the district’s website to see if your question has been answered at a previous meeting. We must
submit questions and concerns two weeks in advance of each meeting, so notify me at least two and one-
half weeks prior to the above meeting dates. Your participation will be kept strictly confidential, although
we cannot take anonymous questions or concerns to PAC.
We look forward to serving you throughout the school year. Please feel free to contact us whenever we
can be of assistance. Please complete the following and send an electronic copy to:
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
