Update:

On April 25/2019 the PAC Executive gave a parent presentation on the current state of legal proceedings based on a misappropriation of funds and issued the following statement:

  • The individual who allegedly misappropriated funds from PAC has been removed from their position within PAC;
  • The misappropriation has been reported to the Kelowna RCMP Fraud Department resulting in an ongoing investigation that may result in criminal charges; and,
  • On the advice of the Kelowna RCMP, the PAC has retained counsel at Doak Shirreff Lawyers LLP for the purposes of recovering the misappropriated funds
  • A repayment schedule has been agreed to and money is currently being repaid in instalments.   

The PAC is always looking for ways to increase parent participation at meetings.  Meetings are currently held on Thursdays; they are looking to see if moving to a different night will increase/decrease participation.   If you have ideas you would like to share please contact the SRE Pac President sre.pacpresident@sd23.bc.ca

  

 

PAC Mtg.pngParent Advisory Councils are the formal "voices" of parents and they provide input to schools in British Columbia.  All parents/guardians of children attending public school are members of these important councils (even if you don't attend the meetings).  Attendance at monthly meetings is voluntary, but, strongly encouraged!  
 
An executive group organizes the P.A.C. meetings.  Other parents are needed to help with PAC projects and other school activities.  It is our hope that MANY parents will get involved by attending meetings and supporting the P.A.C. at South Rutland.

The SRE PAC executive for 2019/2020 is committed to working hard during the school year:
