Goal: Represent the Sunnyside PAC at the Surrey District PAC level


  • Attending Surrey DPAC meetings, exercising our PAC’s vote, and reporting back to our PAC.

What it is:

  • The District 36 Parent Advisory Council, known as the Surrey DPAC, is a registered non-profit society formed in 1978 to represents the interests of Surrey parents in the public education system and 2 important things they do are:

    1. Provide parents with a forum for discussion of issues affecting the health, welfare and education of our children.

    2. Advise the Surrey School District (the district sets the price on the cost of things the school can purchase).


Meetings will be conducted in person at Surrey District Education Centre 14033 92 Ave. Surrey B.C. V3V 0B7 and streamed via zoom find link on this website: Surrey DPAC website

Inclusion Diverse Learners Committee

"Our mission as Surrey DPAC is to facilitate meaningful parent involvement in the public school system and to empower parents to speak on behalf of their children. This statement is more so when it comes our diverse learners and their parent/guardian. We recognize that navigating the system to get support for our diverse learners can be a daunting task let alone speaking up on their behalf. In order to better assist our members, we have formed this committee in hopes that it can facilitate a safe space for sharing, learning and support.

Our goal is to learn the system and then be able to provide assistance in navigating it and advocating for much needed change.”

Please check out this website there are lots of resources available and the committee is very passionate about identifying struggles experienced in the schools from students, Education Assistants, teachers, and the administrator perspectives and how they can be improved.
