The Wake County Board of Education Policy 2231 provides for Board Advisory Councils (BAC). Each of the 9 school districts must have an advisory council made up of Principals, Parent Representatives, and at-large members. They meet at least 4 times a year with the district board member as outlined in the policy. Meetings are open to the public. Council members may serve for up to 3 years, and conduct the following tasks:
Post BAC meeting dates at school.
Attend the scheduled meetings.
Communicate: (1) with PTA, parents, and staff regarding board-related issues and forward emails of weekly Board meetings, (2) feedback solicited by the Board on longer-term issues.
Participate in discussion during meetings.
Engage in educational activities (such as studies, research, or other meetings) as directed by the board member.
Provide input to the Board of Education on issues affecting school policies and procedures.
