District Advisory Council

Overview

Milwaukee Public Schools established the District Advisory Council (DAC) to ensure that parents of all students have an opportunity to share their ideas about the needs of children, assist in the planning and operation of Title I programs for children and participate in evaluating the success of Title I efforts. Today, the DAC is a diverse group of families committed to lending their voice on current issues faced by Milwaukee Public Schools.

DAC Delegate Forms

The District Advisory Council (DAC) meets monthly to learn about and advise on district strategies and programs impacting families, mainly related to Title I. All school leaders must identify two delegates who are family members of students in their school to the DAC.  Families can serve as a delegates as long as their child(ren) are in Milwaukee Public Schools. The DAC recognizes the most recent representative form submitted by a school leader for which family members serve on the DAC. Additionally, schools may select up to two official alternate members to serve.  Alternate, members are encouraged to attend all meetings and participate in discussions. However, alternate members may only vote when one of the school's official representatives is absent.

The following forms should be completed and signed by the school principal and sent to dac@milwaukee.k12.wi.us or dropped off at  your child's school.
