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

The Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils of Saanich (COPACS) is the official representative for School District 63 Parent Advisory Councils. Every school has a Parent 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 first Thursday of the month at 7 pm at the Saanich Schools' Education Centre. All parents and guardians of Saanich District students are welcome to attend.
