About the AAC

The Academic Advisory Council (AAC) at Mat-Su Central School is a group composed of parents, school staff, principal and school board member(s) which was formed to address urgent needs at the school, express parent concerns, and to give Parent Educators a strong voice in decision-making and policies at the school and District level.  The group has worked to revise School Board Policies and Administrative Regulations to enhance the homeschool and family friendly Homeschool Support Program at Mat-Su Central School.

AAC Elections:

As identified in Board Policy 6181, the Academic Advisory Council (AAC) consists of seven to nine members:

The majority are parents of students enrolled at MCS, and the remaining members include one or two School Board members, a Superintendent designee from the district office, the Mat-Su Central School Principal, and other school staff. The AAC Council meets monthly; the purpose of the Council is to make policy and budgetary recommendations to the District Administration and the School Board that define the Mat-Su Central School philosophy, mission, vision, policies, administrative regulations, practices, and procedures in accordance with state law and regulation.

Any parent of an MCS student interested in serving is welcome to apply and be considered. If you would like to apply, please respond to the following questions and email a photo of yourself to Jane.Keller@matsuk12.us by January 27th.
