What is PAC?
The School Act gives parents the right, through PACs, to assume an
advisory role in every school. PAC is the officially recognized
collective voice of parents of their school. A PAC, through its elected
officers, may advise the school board, the principal and staff of the
school respecting any matter relating to the school other than matters
assigned to the School Planning Council (SPC).
PACs are forums within each school community to discuss matters
affecting your school and the education of your children. Parents’
voices are a tremendous value to their school. They offer a wealth of
ideas and support in the challenges that face all public schools. PACs
strive to represent the diversity within their communities and
contribute to the benefit of all students by:
- providing opportunities to educate and inform parents about the school;
- involving parents in volunteer activities; and
- openly discussing parents' concerns and aspirations for their schools.
If you would like to become a PAC member please join us the last Tuesday of every month in our library or contact our president, Alan Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org
