About us

What is a PAC?

The PAC is the Parent Advisory Council.

PAC members: All Sunnyside parents/guardians are members of the PAC, and can attend meetings. Administrators and staff may be invited to become non-voting members.

PAC executives: PACs annually elect the PAC executives, usually consisting of a chair, vice-chair, secretary, treasurer, and other members of the Council, as the membership decides.

PAC voting: All Sunnyside parents/guardians can vote at general PAC meetings. Administrators and staff do not vote, unless they are also a Sunnyside parent/guardian.

“There is strong evidence that increased parent involvement in the school results in increased student achievement, accomplishment, satisfaction, and bonding all of which result in decreased dropout rates and better citizen."

– BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils
