Chancellor’s Parent Advisory Board

Overview and Purpose:

The Chancellor’s Parent Advisory Board will serve as a mechanism for parent leaders to directly inform the Chancellor about the vision and direction of DCPS, particularly focused on equity, race and diversity in DCPS, and the role of parents in schools.


The Chancellor’s Parent Advisory Board will consist of 24 DCPS parents or guardians who have at least one child in DCPS (or who are prospective DCPS parents) and who are reflective of the diversity of the DCPS community. The group will include representation from every Ward.

Meeting Frequency:

The Chancellor’s Parent Advisory Board will meet every other month.
