Detroit Public Schools Community District


This grant will support the launch of School Advisory Councils (SACs) in every school in the Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD). The implementation of SACs is intended to build a broader constituency of support for schools through systematized communication and engagement with parents and the broader school community. SACs have the potential to serve as a catalyst for addressing one of the priorities in DPSCD’s strategic plan: transformative culture with the ultimate goal of school improvement.
