Purpose of PAC:
At our School the Parent Advisory Committees (PACS) provide invaluable opportunities for communication between the School and its community. The purpose of the PAC is to create important feedback loops between parents and school, and to consider ways to improve and enhance The KAUST School. It gives parents a voice in matters affecting the day-to-day life of TKS and the overall well-being of our students. At the monthly meetings, the Principal sets the agenda that includes items submitted by Committee members.
Structure of PAC:
The PAC is made up of three sub-committees, one for each division (Elementary, Kindergarten and Secondary).
Each sub-committe is comprised of 7 parents. Divisional Principals aim to select a diverse group from our parent community. Each committee meets monthly and meetings are between 60-90 minutes.
PARENT BOARD MEMBER UPDATE:
For the first time in our history, a PAC member was invited to serve as a Parent Board Member on the TKS Board of Education for the 2017/18 school year. A number of PAC members put their names forward. Erica du Toit was appointed for this new and valuable role. Erica currently serves on the PAC as a GES member.
