Black Village Family Advisory Committee

  • #ITTAKESAVILLAGE

    Mission Statement
    The Black Village Family Advisory Committee (BVFAC) advocates for the needs of students, and families of students, who identify in whole or in part as Black/African-American/African attending Hillsboro School District schools. As a Hillsboro School District supported Parent Advisory Committee (PAC), we aim to support students and families by identifying potential barriers and inequities which hinder the academic experience for Black students, and then advocating for them in communication with the district school board, administrators, faculty, and staff. We accomplish this through listening to our Black students and families, creating a sense of community, and providing resources as well as a platform for their voices to be heard.

    Family Engagement
    The Black Village Family Advisory Committee meets once a month to host family engagement events.
