What is PAC?
PAC is a Parent Advisory Council that comprises one voting representative from each cooperative preschool affiliated with Shoreline Community College; one non-voting faculty representative; and one non-voting College representative. We meet 6 times per year to help facilitate and coordinate communication between the member organizations (i.e., the co-ops) and serve as liaison between those organizations, their instructors, and the Parent Education Program at Shoreline Community College.
