PARENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) consists of parents who reflect the cultural make-up of ASD’s student population. The PAC meets five times yearly to advise the school on educational matters.
Meetings for the 2017- 2018 academic year are September 12, November 14, January 9, March 13, and May 8. All meetings are at 6:00PM in the Family Education Services Room in the Gallaudet Clerc Education Center.
Purpose of PAC: 1) To advise the school on the educational matters; 2) To provide assistance to the school in securing regional, state, community and parent support; 3) To assist the school in developing and implementing beneficial programs for parents and families; 4) To assist the school in fulfilling its mission; and 5) To assist parents through involvement in their child's education by promoting networking.
PARENT SUPPORT GROUPS
Based on parents' requests and needs, a variety of support groups are offered in our Parent Center and other locations throughout the school year, including:
- Preschool Parent Support Group
- Elementary School Parent Support Group

- Deaf with Special Needs (DSN) Parent Support Group

Together We Read
Designed to encourage the development of essential literacy skills, Together We Read helps make shared reading experiences fun and educational. A trained tutor makes home visits to teach parents and guardians the most effective techniques for reading to deaf children. This extraordinarily successful program develops and strengthens learning and comprehension skills while nurturing each child’s enthusiasm for reading.
Parent Lending Library
The Center provides a place for parents to congregate and socialize in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Parents are welcome to take advantage of our resource library with its vast collection of children's and informational books, sign language dictionaries and many other materials related to deafness. All materials are available on a two-week loan program. Also available are computer programs on our parent-friendly computer and an extensive collection of videotapes on sign language. The Parent Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. throughout the school year, and during summer family activities.
