The DPAC Executive has decided to move our monthly DPAC meetings to an online/virtual meeting format in light of the social and physical distancing that is so vitally important with the COVID-19 pandemic. We have explored and tested several videoconferencing platforms and have chosen to go with the free application Zoom. It was the most user friendly, and has the added benefit of being the same videoconferencing platform that teachers and SD57 will be utilizing in the coming months to interact with parents as well. Zoom has video, audio and chat functionality (both group and private with a meeting) with good audio and video quality.

In order to make the April DPAC meeting successful we ask that you familiarize yourself with Zoom and its basic functionality prior to the meeting. Zoom can be used on any device – smartphone, laptop, or tablet – and can be used via it’s webpage by setting up an account or by downloading its app onto the device of your choice.
Here are some links to assist with getting set up and comfortable using Zoom:

While the Executive has tested and prepared to host our first virtual meeting, we do ask for your patience on April 6th as we anticipate some trial and error with hosting and facilitating a larger group for the first time. Our usual partner groups will also be in virtual attendance and the usual structure/agenda of our monthly meeting will remain unchanged.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us via email or Facebook and we will make sure to connect with you to address them.
We look forward to “seeing” everyone on April 6th@ 6:30pm at our first virtual Zoom meeting!
