Greetings Parents and our Education Community,

The COPACS Annual General Meeting is coming up on April 14, 2022.

As you know, COPACS is an organization that represents parents, and we have a very influential role to collaborate with both District staff and Board Trustees, along with the individual PACs. COPACS makes a difference for the education community in SD#63!

In 2021 we supported a parent education series with Dr. Allison Rees, sought the views of 744 parents regarding vaccinations for SD#63 staff and provided input to a regional food security initiative. 

In 2022 we are going to support a nature education initiative with a working group of teachers and administrators from across our district.

COPACS is looking for volunteers to fill the following three critical positions. The positions must be filled for continuance of COPACS. Members are to be voted in at the April 14 virtual Annual General Meeting. 

Please contact copacssd63@gmail.com for more information or if you are interested in volunteering.
