DPAC Minutes – June 2021

We had great attendance at our June DPAC Meeting with a total of 45 people participating the the SD57 Traffic Town Hall. See minutes below.

Parrish Child, Principal at Heather Park Elementary, shared a resource that was created by Admin and PAC at that school to help educate parents and students on traffic safety around their school zone. Feel free to use this in the safety discussions at your school.

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.
