May 2/16: Ed Policy & Directions: Aboriginal Student Achievement Review / Student Assessment Update

New Executive after recent 2016 AGM.
  • Interesting background reading:  January 2012 letter from former  BCCPAC President Ann Whiteaker (now SD61 Greater Victoria Trustee) to the Victoria Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils here.   More correspondence on the page here.

BCCPAC History

  • On September 8, 1915, the first official parent organization was launched at the oldest school in the province, Craigflower, on the outskirts of Victoria.
  • BCCPAC members approved changes to the Bylaws at the May 2015 AGM.
  • Members are both DPACS and individual school PACS.
  • There are 200+ Resolutions – ongoing, achieved or pending. Worth a look. Chose “any” to see all of them, though you can narrow  down by category in the dropdown menu. Here’s an interesting one from 1994 still on the books:
“That students have the opportunity to be taught the most commonly held theories on the origins of our universe and life on our planet, or at least be given a list of resources to explore these on their own; And that students be encouraged to discuss the pros and cons of these theories without being criticized for their opinions, in order to promote critical thinking skills;And that students be taught evolution as theory, not fact. ” Status:  Active.
