DPAC (District PAC)

Sunnyside representative at DPAC: vacant

Goal: Represent the Sunnyside PAC at the surrey district PAC level

Responsibility:

  • 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).

Plan:

  • Our district (#36) is growing at an incredible rate but the infrastructure put in place is not keeping up with it. Every year the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services holds public consultations on the upcoming provincial budget.
