DPAC January Minutes & Approved Bylaws

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 exec@sd57dpac.ca.

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.
