1.            Voting membership of the District 69 Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) is composed of the Parent Advisory Councils (PAC's) for each school represented in our district.

2.            DPAC shall consist of up to two (2) elected DPAC Reps from each PAC within the District.  One DPAC Rep will be the designated voting member at each meeting.

3.            Representatives from our School Board Administration, School Administrators' Association, Teacher's Association, Support Staff, and community organizations with an interest in education shall be invited to attend meetings as a non-voting member of the DPAC.

4.            Parents and/or Guardians of children enrolled in School District No.69 are considered associate members through their individual school PAC's and may attend any DPAC General Meeting.  Parents may address the meeting at the discretion of the DPAC Chair.

5.            At no time shall the Council have more non-voting members than voting members (excluding associate members).

6.            Where a member has children at multiple schools, DPAC shall encourage each member to represent only one (1) PAC, representing that school's interests with that vote.  DPAC Reps would become the liaison between DPAC and their PAC.
