Academic Advisory Committee (AAC)
About AAC

The Academic Advisory Committee (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 and parent concerns, and to give Parent Educators a strong voice in decision-making and policies at the school and District level. The group has been working to revise School Board Policies and Administrative Regulations to enhance the homeschool & family friendly Homeschool Support Program at Mat-Su Central School. One direct result of the AAC’s work has been the facility enhancements underway, which includes a family Homeschool Resource Center and space for student and parent workshops and labs.

All MSC parents, vendors, and staff are invited to attend AAC meetings.
