Supporting SD63 Saanich 
Parents' Advisory Councils (PACs) and families in public education

The Confederation of Parents' Advisory Councils of Saanich (COPACS) is the official representative for School District 63 Parents' Advisory Councils. Every school has a Parents' Advisory Council and each of these is a COPACS member. Our primary task under provincial legislation is to advise the School Board on “any matter relating to education in the school district”.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to get involved! Attend monthly COPACS meetings or contact us directly to receive updates of issues, activities and concerns of PACS in our district. We welcome parent feedback regarding district issues and policies. If you have any individual questions or concerns, please send an email to the COPACS meets on the second Thursday of the month at 7 pm at the Individual Learning Centre, Saanichton. Any deviations from this schedule will be posted on the website forum and on our facebook feed. All parents and guardians of Saanich District students are welcome to attend.

January Meeting: in case of snowy conditions
by Phil Molloy - Wednesday, 15 January 2020, 7:09 PM

Tomorrow's (Jan 16th's) COPACs meeting will be dependent on the Individual Learning Centre being open. If the ILC closes due to the current snowy conditions, we will have to cancel or postpone our meeting. Conversely, if the ILC opens (and remains open all day), our meeting will go ahead. Thanks for your understanding.

From COPACS Exec.

PS: SD63 weather alert info is available here:"
