District Advisory Council

Parkside Elementary has an upcoming opening on the Parent/Student District Advisory Council. This is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in shaping our children’s education experience and ensuring Parkside has a voice on the council. Being a member of the council is a 2 year commitment with 3-4 meetings a year.

The Family of Schools District Advisory Councils (D.A.C.s) are mandated is to help shape an education system that is focused on and meets the needs of learners, by advising the Minister of Education, Early Learning and Culture on education matters. The councils consider a balance between local issues brought forward by council members and topics that the Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture is seeking advice on.

The efforts of parents and students make PEI schools better places to learn and grow.

If you are a parent of a student at Parkside and interested in representing Parkside on the council or have further quessions please submit your name to the current rep, Sara Courtney at by March 1st.
