Become a WAC Member
Become part of Lamar’s Wraparound Community Council Committee. There are positions available for parents, staff, and community members.

Parents act as the primary advocates for all children. Parents ensure the representation of various viewpoints and values within the community. Parent engagement is key to student achievement and student progress. It is essential that parents on the council understand the responsibilities of the council and can collaborate well with the other members of the council to effect meaningful school improvement for all children.
Teachers, counselors, and school staff members are responsible for the academic needs and well-being of the students in their charge. They evaluate student skills and knowledge, design and implement instruction best suited for each child, and are in charge of decisions related to methods of teaching. Staff members can work collectively to help identify and provide input on student non-academic needs as shared through Student Assistance Forms (SAF) and the Wraparound Advisory Council. They also work collaboratively by welcoming the viewpoints of parents and accepting input.
Community members are responsible for evaluating service providers/programs and brainstorming how they can collectively bring more assets to support the needs of students and parents in the community. Meaningful and lasting wraparound service delivery originates with community residents, who are the best experts on how to activate change. Wraparound services are most successful when a community focuses on its resources, capacities, strengths, and aspirations. They work collaboratively by welcoming the viewpoints of parents, staff, students, and accepting input.
