AAPAC Meeting @ 5:15 via zoom. The purpose of the African American Parent Advisory Council (AAPAC) is to provide a forum to hear the ideas of the Lawndale Elementary School District’s African American/Black families, 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/Black 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 families to more actively support the academic achievement and social emotional learning of their children to ensure they are college and career ready.
