In Wayne County, each of our local school districts is encouraged to appoint one or two PAC representatives. Wayne County Parent Advisory Committee (WCPAC) members often serve as an information source for other parents in their community. Each monthly business meeting of the WCPAC includes a parent training segment on issues identified by the members.
