Agenda for January 15, 2019 DPAC General Meeting
by SD73 DPAC - Thursday, 10 January 2019, 7:19 PM

Hi everyone,

Please see attached for Draft agenda for Tuesday's meeting.

Please invite all parents to come out and hear Art McDonald's Facilities report, which was also recently presented to the board.  Long story short:  We need more space, more money, more portables, more buses, and more teachers to help with our continued increasing enrollment.  At some schools, the situation is absolutely dire.  Come get the details - I've seen the report and it's absolutely shocking how few resources we get at SD73 compared to other regions in the province.

This is also a preliminary call for anything resolutions-related for our April AGM.  We will be working to continue tweaking our bylaw wording to be more in-line with other DPACs in the province.  If you have any ideas/special resolutions to put forth, we'd love to have them asap.  Deadline is in two weeks because we need to have all new (potential) wording out to the membership 2 months before the AGM.

See you Tuesday at 7pm at the Grube, friends.

November 20th General Meeting
by SD73 DPAC - Tuesday, 13 November 2018, 10:08 AM

Good morning everyone,

Holy Doodle Batman, We have a HUGE meeting set up for Nov 20th.  See attached Draft Agenda.

We will be asking for reports from the Superintendent and Trustees now that the election is over.

We will be hearing from Kerri Schill, who attended meetings representing DPAC for SD73 with the Minister of Education at the BCCPAC Fall Conference.

We will be asking for help with our new Working Group to look at updating our Bylaws.

We will be looking for your opinions for education for the rest of the year (We want the EDGE to come back and do the actual presentation for us, since the officer in charge of this program in Kamloops couldn't make it last year, but what else would you like to see?).

There will be DPAC involvement with the Superintendent's Joint Advisory Committee on School Safety and we want to hear your thoughts so Chris can bring them forward to the meeting on the 23rd.

DPAC also has been asked to sit on the Committee looking at Report Cards and "Communicating Student Learning" and we would like to hear your thoughts on that as well (Valerie is sitting on that committee to represent parents).

Come one, come all!  It's going to be a busy one, and unfortunately I won't be there on time, since I fly in from Montreal at send any agenda items to me asap and I can add them on in advance.

Cheers everyone and see you Tuesday, Nov 20 at the Grube
