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 on 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.
