What is the Kerrisdale School PAC and Who is on the PAC?

PAC stands for Parent Advisory Council. The PAC’s purpose is to promote effective communication between students’ families and the school, to encourage parent/caregiver participation in educational activities, community-building events and decision-making; to strengthen the role of families in education and schooling; and to foster meaningful family engagement. 

PAC Vacancies

We are hoping to fill vacant PAC Executive positions for the upcoming school year. It's the perfect opportunity for members of our vibrant community to step forward and play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Kerrisdale Elementary. The PAC Executive includes a group of dedicated parent volunteers that want to build community and support our children and school. We recognize that these are busy times and we have a variety of volunteer roles that require different time commitments. We are always appreciative of whatever members can offer.
