As part of the Title I, Title III and Title IV program federal mandates, the Washington School District is required to have a Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) which assists in the development and evaluation of the programs.

These programs are designed to help students achieve success in reading and math, to assist students in becoming proficient in speaking English, and to provide well-rounded education to unique groups of students.

The committee will be made up of parent representatives from throughout the district.

The PAC also will include representatives from district teachers, administrators, specialized instructional support personnel, local government and community based organizations.

A spring meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 8, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the Technology and Learning Center, 4245 Highway 47, Washington. The meeting will focus on planning for the 2018-19 school year.

Anyone interested in attending, should contact Chris Marquart at the district office, 636-231-2005, or email at

Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer said parent participation on this committee is greatly appreciated. She said parents are the greatest single indicator of a student’s success in school.
