DPAC represents all local PACs (Parents’ Advisory Councils) at the school district level in conversations having direct impact on policies, budgets and the overall culture of education within our district.

DPAC asked some tough questions 4 years ago, that ultimately led to significant changes within School District 83. We are proud of the contribution DPAC has made to changes in transparency, accountability and communication between the school district and our communities. For example, DPAC requested improved transparency and a broader understanding of the annual budget process, which we are pleased to see in place today.

SD83 DPAC has been a positive, effective and involved parent voice over the past several years. It is important that a strong parent voice continue to represent the perspectives of our Shuswap families.
