Event Details

Elizabeth Gardner, District Vice Principal-Learning Support Services will share focused work the Burnaby School District is doing with Learning Support Teachers, EAs and classroom teachers to assess, teach and develop independence so that our students with special needs can spend the majority of their time focusing on learning and social life within the classroom and school.

The presentation will cover:

  •  Why independence so critical.
  •  How we identify the skills needed for our students/children to become more independent.
  •  How we teach those skills.
  •  How we fade supports so that the student/child is able to do things without adult support.
  •  What parents do at home to support developing independence.

Burnaby DPAC

The School Act (Province of British Columbia) defines the responsibilities and authority of the DPAC as an advisory and advocacy council. It may make recommendations to the School Board through the School Board’s officials or by representation, and provide the School Board with information to assist in decision- making.

The Burnaby District Parent Advisory Council, known as the Burnaby DPAC, was formed to represent the interests of Burnaby parents in the public education system. The Burnaby DPAC is guided by a Constitution, and meets the last Monday of each month. Please note: there are no meetings in Dec, Jun, Jul or Aug.

DPAC is the recognized voice of parents at the district level, and is made up of representatives from each PAC in Burnaby School District #41. These school reps act as a liaison between their school PAC and DPAC, representing the views and interests of their PAC.

Burnaby DPAC’s focus for this year include:

  1. Supporting parent education
  2. Facilitating sharing of resources, knowledge and experience between PACs and parents
  3. Fostering positive relationships between trustees and PACs
  4. Providing meaningful input to the district regarding parents’ concerns and questions
