GRSS November PAC Meeting

The November PAC meeting for GRSS parents will be held on November 30th at 7:00pm in the GRSS Library.  Following is a message from PAC President Nicole Cooper  regarding school planning councils:

Did you know that you could be a part of GRSS School Planning Council?   What is School Planning Council?  The purpose of School Planning Council (SPC) is to formally acknowledge the importance of parent involvement in improving student achievement in our school.   Under the School Act, the SPC in each school has one role – “to prepare a school plan for improving student achievement in the school and for other matters contained in the school board’s accountability contract relating to the school.”    I wish to bring awareness that we are currently seeking two parents to assist and be a part of the School planning Council.   PAC & SPC are different organizations.  They represent different people and have different purposes.    SPC is part of the Accountability Framework created by the Ministry of Education to focus attention and resources on improving the achievement of all students in BC.  Recently I have stepped up as PAC president and understand first hand that not everyone has the time from their busy schedules to be fully involved.   School planning Council meets only a few times and is very casual.  That said, SPC is very important as parents are partners with the Principal, one PAC representative, students and in some cases the educators in planning for improvement of student achievement in our school.  We will be holding Elections for two parent positions on the SPC at our next PAC meeting, Wednesday, November 30, 2011.    Please, join me in making a difference in our children’s future. 

For more information on or becoming part of School Planning Council, please do not hesitate to contact me at 250-283-7283 or by email at ncooper12 [at] live [dot] ca.    

GRSS PAC now also has a Facebook Group! If you are a member on Facebook, please search “GRSS PAC” and you will find us.
