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 through the organization of events and initiatives, and the sharing of resources for students, teachers, and parents.


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 2016). 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.
