Parent Advisory Council Meetings

We Need You!

The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is made up of a parent representative from each grade level, the principal, a teacher, and the parent outreach facilitator. The PAC meets at least three times a year and gives input and direction for the Title I program including the school compact, the school policy for parent involvement, and the parent workshops. ALL parents at Burnett Elementary are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in all PAC meetings. The meetings will be advertised on the school website, on signage, and through flyers. The dates for the PAC meetings for 2017-2018 are listed below. Please note that dates and times are subject to change.


If you would like to serve on the Parent Advisory Council, or if you would like more information regarding our various resources and parent workshops, please contact our Instructional Lead Teacher, Mrs. Brooks at (770) 651-3533; email her at [email protected]. The faculty, staff, and administrators at Burnett look forward to working with your family this year!
