Multicultural Parent Advisory Council (MPAC)
The Multicultural Parent Advisory Council, formerly known as the Parker Parent Group, was formed in March 1999. The parent group was named in honor of Dr. William Parker, who believed parent involvement plays a key role in student achievement. The Board of Education, the Superintendent of Schools and others within the Rush-Henrietta Central School District encouraged the Parker Parent Group to become a formal established group in the district. Out of this, the Multicultural Parent Advisory Council (MPAC) was formed. Everyone is invited to attend.
