African American Parent Advisory Council (AAPAC)


The mission of the African American Parent Advisory Council (AAPAC) is to provide a forum to hear the ideas of the San Francisco Unified School District’s African American parent community, and respond to those ideas by educating and informing parents of district resources, policies, and programs. It is our goal to empower the lives of all African American children and families by providing the knowledge and skills necessary to advocate for a high quality educational experience for our children. The AAPAC works to develop resources that allow parents to more actively support the academic instruction their children receive and engage with educators and administrators in the San Francisco Unified School District. We aim to lift every parent voice and help less engaged parents find their voice through us.
