If you encounter any difficulty logging in, please text 250-565-4949.

We ask that you send at least one person to represent your school – this is a way that your voice can count in the district. We need representation; we need to know what you want for parents in this district in order to be effective.

It’s important that parents have a strong and effective parent voice, and in order to do this, we need to have representatives from our PACs.

We also need new leadership in this DPAC, as a number of current Executive members will be leaving at the end of their term due to term limits, children graduating, or other commitments.
