DISTRICT PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL (DPAC)
It is the policy of the Board of School Trustees to support and promote effective, systematic two-way communication within the educational organization and with the citizens of Burnaby, and to make available information about programs, practices and policies so that the community can exercise its right to influence the operation of the schools, and so that citizens can contribute to and influence educational decisions.
It is also the policy of the Board that each school shall have an ongoing mechanism and process which provides for consultation with and input by the parents in regard to the program and general operations of the school. The form of the parent school body shall be at the discretion of the local school/home community.
Consistent with the above policies, it is the Board's desire to meet with representatives of these local school committees to provide periodic input to the Board on programs, practices, policies and issues related to school district operations.
The District Parent Advisory Council, which is guided by a Constitution, meets the last Monday of each month (note: no meeting in December, June, July or August). Meetings take place at Schou Education Centre, 4041 Canada Way, at 7 pm
