Community Engagement Advisory Council (CEAC)CEAC is the district’s effort to formally enlist and partner with constituent-based organizations and community members to help Boston Public Schools deeply engage all members of our community and every stakeholder group regarding initiatives and policies.
Through the Council’s work, BPS seeks to increase public engagement and rebuild trust and confidence with all stakeholders. To this end, CEAC’s charge focuses on two areas. First, the group helps the district refine communications and engagement processes related to initiatives and policies. Second, the group supports broad outreach to all stakeholder groups by co-hosting public engagement activities.
