June DPAC Minutes

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.

Feel free to contact us at any time at exec@sd57dpac.ca. Thanks!

DPAC Meeting Minutes – March 2020

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!

November Meeting Minutes & Agenda for December 2

The school year is in full swing and moving steady right into Christmas break. Please review the minutes from our November 4th meeting.

Plans are underway for a PAC Cafe in the new year. Plan to come to our next meeting on Monday to hear about that and much more. Representatives from Senior Administration, the Board of Education, and many other partner groups are there to provide information on initiatives within the District and answer parent’s questions. PAC Representatives from multiple schools benefit from discussions and networking regarding fundraisers and programs that they run at their elementary and secondary schools. Even if you are not an elected PAC Rep, all parents are welcome to attend!
