The PAC meets on a regular basis to consider school issues of concern to parents and to organize events, activities and programs intended to enhance the educational climate and community spirit of Frank Hobbs. Minutes of these meetings are kept and posted on the Parents’ Bulletin Board in the main lobby, on the Frank Hobbs webpage, as well as items in the school newsletter.
The Parent Advisory Council is not a forum for the discussion of individual school personnel, students, parents or other individual members of the school community. An executive member who is approached by a parent with a concern is in a privileged position and must treat such discussion as confidential. With regard to individual concerns, the role of PAC is to advise the parent on how to present his/ her concern and to ensure that there is an appropriate protocol to hear about individual concerns or complaints at the school as well as the district level.
