Who we are: Through memberships of parents' advisory councils (PACs) from across District 75, we represent the concerns of parents of the Mission School District at the school board level. Mission DPAC is governed by the School Act [RSBC 1996] Chapter 412 Section 8.5 (1) in which DPAC "may advise the board on any matter relating to education in the school district." General meetings are not just for PAC representatives but all parents of MPSD students are welcome.
You may contact us by email (see right column).
