District Parent Advisory Councils (DPAC) are recognized by the School Act and represent the collective views of school Parents’ Advisory Councils (PAC) in a school district (BCCPAC). In School District No.48 (Sea to Sky), DPAC provides a vehicle of communication between individual school PACs, advocates for parental involvement in the education system, and provides funds to support parent education.

 

Our Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) and the district-wide DPAC put in countless hours throughout the school year. They provide support for their school communities by organizing events and initiatives and sharing resources for students, teachers, and parents. Visit your child(ren)'s school website for more information about their school's PAC.
