Inspired by the Family Advisory Committee (FAC) under the (PEAK) Pottstown Early Action for Kindergarten Readiness Program of the Pottstown School District.
Who We Are
The Family Advisory Committee (FAC) are interested and involved District parents coming together on a monthly basis to share opportunities with the district to promote family and school engagement through collaboration and informal leadership. FAC families are families who would not typically be involved in the PTA or who had no other way to become involved. The FAC provided a safe, welcoming environment for a diverse group of individuals to come together for a common good. Obstacles to participate were removed through the FAC format (dinner, childcare-being the main concern, free).
