Parents of African American Students Advisory Council

  • Saint Paul Public Schools thrives on parent and community engagement and outreach as a mean of lending authentic parent/community concerns to the district. Network with other SPPS parents and participate to insure a quality education for all district students through membership in PAASAC (Parents of African American Students Advisory Council). Membership is voluntary, must be a parent or family member of an SPPS student, graduate or concerned community member.

    Parents of Black students are needed to participate, to be empowered to advocate for their children at their schools as individual parents and through membership in PAASAC where we address the districtwide-concerns of parents within SPPS.

    We encourage parents to

    • volunteer at school events and activities,
    • attend parent conferences,
    • National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) events in February each year,
    • become familiar with your child’s school personnel,
    • talk with other parents and family members about their school(s),
    • join the PTA, attend a board of education meetings, and
    • talk with your children about what matters to them to make for a positive educational experience.
    • Attend the annual African American Senior Recognition event that recognizes hardworking student achievers.
