Parent Advisory Council is challenging all families, schools, and community groups to work together to support learning. Regardless of family income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to:

- Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
- Be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits
- Attend school regularly
- Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school
- Graduate and go on to post secondary education

The Home and School Partnership Parent Advisory Council cordially invites all interested parents to attend our monthly meetings. The meeting location is Lynn Vocational Technical Institute Annex Building/School Administration Building at 90 Commercial St. in the second floor Staff Development Room from 6:30PM-8:00PM.

If you have questions about the Home and School Partnership Parent Advisory Council, please contact Sue Rowe at (781) 477-7220 ext. 230
