DPHS Parent Advisory Council Philosophy & Purpose
The inception of the the Deer Park High School “PAC” came about as a result of meetings held between DPHS parents, high school administratiors, and Superintendent Mick Miller in early 2007. One of the outcomes of these productive meetings was the need to have stronger parent involvement at DPHS, and thus, the group dedicated themselves to the formation of a Parent Advisory Council to help provide parents establish a stronger voice regarding the culture and climate of DPHS.
In October 2007, Principal Joe Feist sent an invitation to all DPHS parents asking them to consider being a part of the DPHS Parent Advisory Council. Based on response to the October 2007 letter, two parent representatives were selected for each grade level. Parents Bill O’Dea and Ralph Broadrick agreed to help lead the formation of this group of parents as well as to organize the work of the parent council.
PAC meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the DPHS Library (subject to change). PAC meets in October, January and April.
DPHS staff representatives (principal, teachers, etc.) present ideas, policy and/or procedures on which they want parental input. PAC has an open dialogue and collaborative discussion which is encouraged throughout the entire session.
The “inaugural” PAC members felt that it would be important to publicly share their phone numbers and e-mail addresses, providing other DPHS parents a method to share questions, concerns, and ideas with the PAC – therefore, phone numbers and email addresses are listed below. PAC members strongly encourage all parents of DPHS students to feel free to contact them with with any comment, suggestion, idea and/or concern.
