Parents have the opportunity to sit on many different committees with SD71 staff and trustees throughout the school year which deal with many important issues in the district. Parents are welcome to volunteer at any time by submitting their name, email address and phone number to any DPAC executive
Committee participation is addressed in our Constitution and Bylaws. A parent does not have to be a current DPAC executive or DPAC representative to participate on a committee.
Sexual Health Committee
Emergency Preparedness Committee
Transportation and Busing Committee
School District 71 Committees
Parents are requested to participate with the Calendar Committee (usually in the Spring) to provide parent input. Feedback is often requested by surveying school PACs and reporting through a DPAC representative.
The Ministry of Education no longer stipulates the school calendar. School Districts can form their own school calendar.
District Hiring Committee
The Human Resources department of SD71 requires parents and staff be involved in the hiring process to participate in a one-day course regarding policy and procedure for interviewing and hiring. Contact your school's DPAC representative to have your name forwarded on if you are interested in District Hiring.
Standing & Ad hoc Committees
Standing and Ad hoc committees may be established when necessary by motion of the Executive or the Council. The Chair of the committee will report regularly to DPAC.
