is the Parent Advisory Council (PAC)? The primary role of the PAC is to
“advise the Board, Principal and staff of the school respecting any matter
relating to the school.” The PAC consists of all parents and guardians who wish
to attend monthly meetings and volunteer to help with planning, coordinating,
and fundraising for events and activities throughout the school year.
and where are PAC meetings held? PAC meetings are held monthly. They
are currently held on the third Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the staff room
at the school. Meeting dates are posted in the school email newsletter, on the
PAC bulletin board located across from the school office and website. Free
child-minding is provided for the duration of the meeting.
can attend PAC meetings? Meetings are open to all David Livingstone
parents, guardians, staff, and invited guest speakers.
happens at PAC meetings? At meetings we discuss school issues, provide
advice on policy and procedures, support school programs, and plan special
events for students and families. Each meeting includes reports from the Chair,
Treasurer, Committees, and Principal. In addition, teachers and guest speakers
may present information on a variety of topics.
elected positions are there on Council? Elected positions include
Chair, Vice or Co Chair(s), Secretary(s), Treasurer, and Members at
Large. Elections are held in September and any parent or guardian may run for a
position or cast a vote.
there any other opportunities for parents to volunteer? In
addition to the elected PAC positions, there are many other opportunities for
parents to volunteer to help plan, organize, fundraise, and assist with the
events and activities that happen throughout the school year. Information about
the various PAC committees, activities, events, and volunteer opportunities can
be found on the PAC
does fundraising involve and why is it needed? Fundraising events are
supported through the volunteer efforts of the PAC. Proceeds from these events
fund items not covered by government funding sources. These items typically
include technology equipment and software, library books, gym equipment,
audio-visual supplies, field trips, and additional “special event”
