On February 10, 2022 we held a 90minute live webinar session with Q&A entitled "Understanding PACs from A-Z and Why they are Important for Families" for parents/guardians/caregivers in the province.

Whether you are involved with your school PAC or your district PAC (DPAC), whether you are part of a small or large school or large or small PAC, whether you have children about to enter public school or have children already enrolled in K-12 public school, this session will help you better understand the parent advisory council structure (PAC, per the School Act) by which ALL public school parents are represented - at the school level by their PAC, at the district level by their DPAC and at the provincial level by BCCPAC.
During this session President Sinclair provided an overview of the key elements such as: the importance of the PAC/DPAC and their role within the school and the district; why communication and transparency with your school community is important and can be done easily; why an updated Constitution and Bylaws is critical; the benefit to your school of being involved at the DPAC level; parent engagement and succession planning, and a few general tips and tricks.
Please share in your school PAC communities.
