Description | Membership | Policies and Procedures


The Principal Advisory Council (PAC) is composed of exemplary metropolitan-area principals within the seven-state North Central region. PAC members collaborate with the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory (NCREL) at Learning Point Associates to identify and shape projects that address the needs of school principals. The council will provide feedback on product and service design; recommend methods for dissemination; provide needs-sensing data to NCREL; and learn about Learning Point Associates resources, products, and services that are available to the educational community.
