The Massachusetts special education law requires a school district to establish a Parent Advisory Council (PAC) and assigns both an advisory and participatory function to the PAC. As outlined in the Guidance for Special Education Parent Advisory Councils, the PAC must offer membership to all parents of students found eligible for special education in the district, as well as other interested parties. The PAC is authorized to provide advice to the district regarding special education programs and policies. Additionally, the PAC is authorized to meet with designated school officials and to engage in activities which enable the PAC to participate in the planning, development and evaluation of the district’s special education programs.
