District - Parent Advisory Council (D-PAC)
Please consider joining the Wilkes County Schools' District - Parent Advisory Council as we work together to engage our community. The purpose of D-PAC is to address and discuss ways to improve our instructional, social and emotional services to students and their families. If you are interested, please contact your school's principal, parent liaison or Dr. Joe Bullis, Director of Federal Programs. Engage, connect and transform with Wilkes County Schools' D-PAC!
