The Central Community Elementary School Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is the officially recognized collective voice of parents in our school.  The PAC is an important venue for all parents and caregivers to discuss, along with our principal, matters affecting our school and the education of our children.

‚ÄčAll parents and caregivers are welcome to attend our meetings to hear from the principal about all the events and activities going on at the school, to ask questions, to volunteer to help out, to meet and socialize with other parents, to pass on suggestions and ideas for future fundraising, and to share your knowledge.  Please see the agenda and minutes links to view what's coming up and what has occurred previously.  Come join us!

The Central PAC Mission Statement:

The Central Community Elementary School PAC is dedicated to the education and wellbeing of the child.  Our primary mandate is to promote effective communication between the home and the school.  We encourage parents and guardians to participate in meaningful educational activities and decision-making, to strengthen the roles of families in education, and to foster meaningful parent participation.  We provide support for teachers and staff to meet their students' educational needs.‚Äč

The Objectives of the Central PAC are:

1.     To support, encourage, and improve the quality of education and the well-being of students in Central Community elementary School.

2.     To provide a forum and opportunities for the membership to openly review and discuss any matter related to the school (e.g., programs, policies, plans, and activities) as stipulated in the School Act and to advise the Principal, staff or other associated organizations of any recommendations.

3.     To promote effective communication and cooperation between the home and school in providing for the education of children.

4.     To provide parents with information on how to effectively communicate within the education system and to advocate on behalf of their children at both the School and District levels.

5.     To provide parent education and professional development, and a forum for discussion of educational issues.

6.     To assist the Principal and staff in ensuring the highest safety standards are maintained in the school and neighbourhood.    

7.     To initiate fundraising activities only when there is a clearly identified need to provide funds for children to receive an enhanced quality of education in a safe, healthy environment, and/or to generate funds to cover all PAC expenses.

8.     To affiliate with the District 43 Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) and the British Columbia Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC).‚Äč
