What is PAC?
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
- 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.
