Parent Student Advisory Committee
The Parent-Student Advisory Committee (PSAC) is made up of our parents, guardians, and students of various Native American Indian ancestry, affiliation, and other ethnic backgrounds. The PSAC's overall mission is to support SUSD's Native American Indian program through guiding, participating, and organizing yearly events that assist our Native students in their educational and cultural endeavors throughout their formative years.
