What is a PAC? What is DPAC?

Each school in our district is required to have a Parent Advisory Council (PAC). The role of the council is to advise the principal about the parent community’s thoughts on school matters. All meetings are public and any parent or caregiver of the school is welcome to attend. Specific issues or concerns regarding individual students are not handled at PAC meetings. Contacting the principal to schedule a meeting is more appropriate for those issues.

 

At the district level, the DPAC (District Parent Advisory Council) is an opportunity for parents, principals, senior administration and trustees to learn together about how we can support our schools right across the district to be as effective as possible. We have presentations on curriculum issues, operational issues (budget, staffing, facilities) and conversations about parent and guardian perspectives of where we should be focusing our efforts in our district.

 

Each PAC is encouraged to send a delegate or two (or more!) to the DPAC meeting. All SD46 parents/caregivers are welcome to attend any of the meetings!
