District Parent Advisory Council


Comox Valley District Parents Advisory Council (DPAC) is a collective voice of School District #71 parents and guardians. DPAC is comprised of up to two representatives from each district school PAC. DPAC council delegates are elected, appointed or otherwise selected by their PAC.
