Insurance Update

We know that PACs have received confusing and conflicting information about booking the school for meetings and events and have been asked to provide proof of insurance to the City. We thank you for your patience as DPAC advocates on your behalf regarding this matter. Here’s what we know:

In response to a requirement in the User Agreement with the City of Prince George, School District 57 has an “Application for Use of School Facilities” form and policies for licensees to book facilities, pay fees, and show sufficient insurance coverage. It will be rolled out to schools soon.

Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) and District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) are mandated to operate under the School Act and the District does not intend to cause financial hardship to our non-profit organizations. They are working to ensure we do not have to pay user fees or purchase insurance.
If you have previously incurred a cost for a meeting or event, forward the receipt to exec@sd57dpac.ca.

Further information on the booking process and exemptions will be provided at the September DPAC meeting as well as updates on other initiatives.
We hope to have representatives from all PACs attend.
