SCHOOL DISTRICT # 71

Most school PAC need more involvement from parents...WHY Participate? 
Parents (through their active involvement in PACs) advocate for the best possible public education for all children in our school system.    Under the School Act, PACs and DPACs have a formally recognized advisory role in the school system.   Our partners in education expect to hear what parents think about any issue pertaining to the public school system.   A PAC is an independent group in each school who defines their own goals as identified by the parents of the school community.    PAC's financially support their own goals, and therefore contribute to the improvement of public education.  As an added bonus to families, it has been proven that student success is linked to parental involvement in education! 
  
Parents have been involved in B.C. schools for over 80 years!  (reference: BCCPAC's document:  Parent Involvement~ Basic Principles).  Please note that all parents/guardians are automaticly members of their school's PAC.    We are looking forward to talking to more of our SD 71 Parents at PAC and DPAC !!!!
