We are pleased that the DPAC Executive and Bylaw Review Committee have proposed changes that were amended and approved during our January General Meeting. There will be a formatting review and then the updated copy will be posted on our website. See documents below.
Three items have been referred back to the Committee: 1) Bylaw 1: Terms – clarify definitions for stakeholders and rightsholders (formerly Partner Groups) 2) Bylaw 6: Term of Office – research and recommend the pros/cons of Executive Members sharing positions 3) Bylaw 8: Duties of Officers – list roles and responsibilities that will be assigned to Directors
If you have any questions or further input for our Constitution and Bylaws, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We missed some PAC Representatives at our last meeting for the school year! It was still a worthwhile discussion about the District’s Restart Plan and new Administrative appointments and organizational chart changes. Check out the details on the minutes here:
Your DPAC Executives are working hard to advocate for parents and PACs. We will continue this important work throughout the summer. Watch for important updates from us in August including an opportunity for parents to join a Zoom meeting to get more information.
Plan to join us for the last meeting of the school year on June 1. We get great updates from the School District on many decisions and initiatives. Our AGM has been postponed to October 2020. Think about ways you would like to get involved with DPAC and watch for information on our website about Executive positions available.
If you haven’t seen it yet, this is the latest video from Superintendent Anita Richardson. Take a few minutes to listen at the link below.
Our March meeting was jam packed with tense issues! But much progress was made and mutual respect was sensed between all participants. We would like to thank our Partner Group Representatives for listening to parents and taking our advice. We have seen an increase in communication and engagement from the District Office and School Board.
Please take some time to read these minutes and continue to keep up to date with information on www.sd57.bc.ca. Thank you!
