Parent Advisory Council

IMG_4869All Upward Bound parents are encouraged to attend the monthly Parent Advisory Council. Each month, the group engages in important discussions such as: Navigating through the LSD System, ACT Prep, Scholarships/Financial Aid, Parent “Rap” Sessions, Parent Workshops, and Fundraising.

The Parent Advisory Council meets the 3rd Saturday of every month at Foster Community Center. The meeting lasts from 10:00am-11:00am. Upward bound parents should make it their priority to attend. This is an excellent chance to meet other parents and share experiences.

The PAC group has been very busy and has several Scholarship Fundraisers coming up. The goal is to raise $500 for eligible seniors. The PAC this year is comprised of extremely involved and active members. It is our hope that they will continue to stay active through PAC until their children graduate.

Here are more resources for Upward Bound parents and PAC members:

On April 30, 2016 we held the Parent Workshop with over 80 attendees. Several participants asked for access to the PowerPoint presentation on Preparing for College, which contains several useful links (including the FAFSA, college admission websites, and more). Please find a copy of the PowerPoint as a pdf here: Preparing for College – Course Selection – SATs – Financial Aid.
