The Webster Groves district Parent Advisory Council (PAC) was formed by families who expect that children with disabilities and/or unique learning needs are educated effectively, afforded the dignity of belonging, and valued throughout all Webster Groves School District learning
opportunities and experiences. PAC representatives communicate regularly and directly with
Special School District (SSD) and Webster Groves administrators about the needs and interests of students who have IEPs and 504 plans. We hope that as we continue to grow, our membership will be representative of the full diversity of our student body and their families. Please join the Webster Groves PAC Facebook group or contact us for more information about our meetings or if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to help!
