What is the Parent Advisory Panel (PAC)?

The Parent Advisory Council is a group of representatives from each individual preschool within the South Seattle College system.  Under the PAC umbrella are three unique, but cohesive, subcommittees:

  • Community Outreach
  • Equity
  • Mary E. Phillips Scholarship Fund

Working closely together, members of these three subcommittees meet quarterly to:

  • Make recommendations about preschool policies
  • Lobby on behalf of preschools and kids
  • Raise and manage funds for scholarship assistance
  • Look at equitable practices within our program
  • Acquire dynamic and educational events for parents in the co-op program and in the surrounding community.

The Mary E. Philips Scholarship Fund: Helping Make Preschool Affordable for All.

Operating primarily on donations and fundraising, The Mary E. Phillips Scholarship Fund provides partial tuition assistance to many eligible families each quarter, assuring that our co-op preschools are affordable for all who want to join.
