DPAC has some funds set aside for supporting activities that foster parental involvement in the schools and promote effective communication between schools, parents, students and the community.
If your PAC would like funding or support for holding such an activity, please get in touch with us for more details.
In the past, we’ve asked people to fill out a form for certain uses of funds. If the activity you’d like funded doesn’t fall within those guidelines, please just let us know – we are looking to be as flexible as possible, as long as it’s an activity that fosters parental involvement in the schools.
Decisions on funding are made at general DPAC meetings, usually held on the first Monday of each month. Please submit the request at least one week in advance of the meeting.
Please complete the information this form and submit via email to exec@sd57dpac. ca – Request for PAC funding 2014 2015 version 2
