B.C. parents have always found ways to support their children academically at home. Now they also have a legal right to volunteer in their children’s schools, as well as opportunities to participate in other ways.
Volunteering is not for everyone, but it can be a good way to get more directly involved in your children’s education, and of course, we always welcome parental involvement at SCIDES.
Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) are the official voices for parents at the school level. If you have a child in a B.C. public school, you are automatically a member of the school PAC. However, you do not have to actively participate unless you want to.
The SCIDES PAC is a non-fundraising parent group that meets once per month via teleconference or computer. All parents are welcome to attend, learn more about SCIDES and be involved in decisions that impact our school.
