District Advisory Committee

DAC KCPS District Advisory Committee


Kansas City Public Schools has a District Advisory Committee (DAC) that serves as a source of information for parents, parent organizations, and the district; supports school parent leadership organizations; addresses school issues and concerns; and allows parents to network, share ideas and solve problems cooperatively. In addition, the DAC serves in an advisory role to the District’s Board of Education. The DAC helps advocate for school-level improvements, as well as city and state level improvements for the district, to create an equitable school system for all.

DAC general body meetings will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays of every other month, starting in September, at the Board of Education and online. Meals, childcare and Spanish interpretation are provided for in-person attendees. All caregivers, students, staff and community members are invited to attend.

2023-2024 DAC General Body Meetings

  • Wednesday, May 1, 6:00 pm (Board of Education, 2901 Troost Ave) and online

The DAC is led by a board of seven executive board officers (DACX) and comprised primarily of school-based delegates. We are now accepting nominations for the next District Advisory Committee (DAC) executive board, and we are looking for a diverse group of candidates that can represent the interests of all KCPS students and families! Seven executive board members will be elected to a one-year term during the May 1 DAC general body meeting. Submit your application by April 25. Contact Courtney Adams for more information.

2023-2024 DAC Executive Board:

Manuel L. Clark – Chairperson
Ashley Johnson – Vice Chairperson
Brittany D. Foley – Recording Secretary
Amanda Trout – Corresponding Secretary
Bob Rhoades – Treasurer
Steve Burton – Parliamentarian
Ibrahim Ramsey – Member at Large

Every school is asked to have a DAC delegate (representative) and alternate. The delegate represents the interests and voices of their school community and shares information between the school and the district. Delegates should be parents/caregivers selected by the school’s parent leadership organization. If your school does not currently have an established parent leadership organization, school administration may select a delegate.
