When are events?
Initially, we hope to have one event per month.
Why was PACSS created?
Think of it as a “PTO” for Student Services.
We work together with the Student Services office to organize social events,workshops and speakers and provide parental support and enrichment.
How do I join?
You are already a member of the community! Every family that currently receives services (i.e. IEP or 504) is supported by PACSS.
