About Us

The Parent Action Committee (PAC) is a multicultural group of concerned parents and community members dedicated to improving the quality of education for all children in New York City with an emphasis on School District 9 in the Bronx. We also empower and educate parents on their rights in the New York City public school system.

We organize parents and community members, we conduct research and outreach, develop leaders, network with allies, offer training opportunities and workshops for parents, and lead public actions to reach our goals.

We hold public school officials, elected officials, and government agencies accountable for the quality of education our children receive and we collaborate with citywide coalitions in order to make real, lasting change in our public school system.
