After some recent research, the PAC executive discovered there is a process and structure for committees through the BC Confederation of Parents Advisory Councils and our own constitution that will help us organize our work better and involve more parents.
BCCPAC guidance: https://bccpac.bc.ca/upload/2016/05/lm-tab12_committees_0.pdf
SJD PAC Constitution: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YuexKdiGm-xokmfn5_2DJkvuv9fD6z_g/view
So, we are starting the process of forming committees following these guidelines and developing a framework so future PAC executives and members have an easy-to-follow guide.
We are working to set up committees for our biggest initiatives – Fundraising, Hot Lunch, Parent Education, and Grade 5 Celebration—and more. There is also the established Active Transportation Committee which will incorporate this structure. We hope this encourages more parents to get involved in the activities they are most interested in and to contribute to the school community.
