PACT is all about partnering as parents, staff, and students -- and one way we do that is through committee meetings where we collaborate on everything from curriculum to policies, and so much more.

All committees, excluding the PACT School Board, meet on the same night! Some committees meet at 5 p.m. Then at 6 p.m. join us for our Community ImPACT information session. And then at 6:20 p.m., we break off into the individual committees and teams.

To get the most up-to-date committee schedules visit the rSchool Today School Calendar.
