Why PACplus?

We want to help parents find the right experts and programs for their school’s priorities.  Connecting priorities and administrators to parents and then to vendors is what we do. Through those connections, schools can efficiently and effectively fulfill priorities specific to Title I budgeting for parent programs.  

We want to help vendors connect with schools and grow their business. By giving vendors access to each school’s specific priorities, vendors can make direct connections to the right school, while schools can easily see which vendors are right for their priorities.

We want to help administrators get the information they need to make great choices / manage their budgets efficiently.  PACplus is an information and communication hub for Title I monies allocated to parent programs. Calendars, budget balances, and overall activity is managed within their specific school’s page, so they can easily track progress all year long.
