SD83 DPAC has been an 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.
DPAC represents all local PACs (Parents’ Advisory Councils) at the school district level by participating in monthly meetings and regular conversations with School Board Trustees and SD83 leadership. This relationship as the parent voice has led to positive and direct impacts on policies, budgets and the overall culture of education within our district.

Diverse Abilities Advocacy Committee (DAAC)
We are committed to obtaining a better understanding of the challenges facing parents and guardians of students with diverse abilities.
We define Diverse Abilities as physical, cognitive, developmental, learning, and/or neurological differences in ability levels. In addition, special needs students are those that require resources different from most students (the formal definition can be found in the BC School Act found on our website links page).
