What is DPAC?
What exactly is DPAC?
DPAC stands for District Parent Advisory Council. We are the official parent voice for School District 73 (Kamloops/Thompson).
Each PAC is encouraged to elect 2 DPAC reps to attend our monthly meetings.
We elect an executive to conduct business between meetings, but our direction is determined by our members, just like at PACs.
What is the role of DPAC?
Our mandate, according to the School Act, is to advise the Board of Education on any matter relating to education in the school district. We funnel parent input to decision-makers in our district.
We facilitate communication – we send a lot of information out to the PACs on upcoming events and programs that might interest them.
We provide training and education for parents, as well as opportunities for exchanging ideas. We host speakers and put on workshops and networking events.
We function as a resource for individual parents and PACs as they do their work at the school level.
