PURPOSES OF THE PAC
The Lord Byng Secondary School Parent Advisory Council includes parents and guardians of all Lord Byng students.
Every Lord Byng parent is automatically a member of the Lord Byng PAC.
The purpose of the Lord Byng PAC is to support, encourage and improve the quality of education and the well-being of all students at Lord Byng.
We invite all parents to attend PAC meetings and to get involved – we guarantee that you will make meaningful connections within the parent community and participate in decision-making that will benefit your child.
The Lord Byng PAC strives to complement and support the efforts of the teachers and administrative staff to provide an outstanding learning environment for all students. Some of the ways in which the PAC meets this goal include advising the principal and staff about parents’ views, communicating to all parents about school activities, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and concerns and raising funds to support classroom and extracurricular programs. As part of the commitment to creating and maintaining an open dialogue between parents and the school, the principal and one teacher representative attend all PAC meetings. The PAC works to involve all parents and guardians in building a vibrant and welcoming school community for both parents and students.

The PAC has responsibilities that are legislated by the BC School Act (Section 8), to “advise the board and the principal and staff of the school... respecting any matter relating to the school” and to “assist the School Planning Council in carrying out its functions.” The PAC thrives because of dedicated parent volunteers. The PAC has an elected executive that manages the business of the PAC and encourages the active and informed participation of parents in the school community.
