Parent Advisory Councils, upon application to the Board of Education, are guaranteed under the school act. PACs provide a parent voice at the school level. All parents and guardians of students in the school are members of a school PAC. PACs may advise the school board, principal and staff an any matter relating to the school, except matters assigned to the school planning council. Upon request, a PAC may assist the school planning council. Three members of PAC are elected to the school planning council and one to the district PAC.
Boundary’s PAC works hand in hand with the school to assist in providing the best possible programs for our students. It is important that parents take an active interest in the activities of their PAC. Through fundraising and volunteering, parents make a difference in the educational experience of their children. Boundary PAC has an executive consisting of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. Meetings are held in the evening once a month at the school.
