PAC
How do I become involved in my child's school?  
 
Parent Advisory Councils are the formal "voice" of parents to provide input to schools in British Columbia.  All parents/guardians of children attending each school are automatically members of this important council.  
 
It is our hope that all of our parents will get involved in this important group.  At Bankhead Elementary School, monthly meetings and other activities are planned and organized by your executive.
 
PAC MISSION STATEMENT:  The PAC is dedication to the education and well being of the child.  The primary mandate of the PAC shall be to promote and support education, to contribute to a sense of community, to encourage effective communication between home and school, to foster meaningful parent participation, and to strengthen the role of families in educational activities and decision making in the school.
