School Communication

The following information outlines the appropriate steps for Parents and Staff when dealing with school-related matters. We are all Partners in Learning.

To build a positive relationship with your school ….

  • meet the staff early in the school year;
  • be informed about your child’s class and school activities;
  • send a note or make a call to recognize a job well done;
  • be involved in your school’s PAC;
  • be willing to listen and learn;
  • remember that both you and school staff are interested in your child’s success.

Suggestions for Parents

  • Step 1: Start with the person whose action has given rise to the concerns or problem.  This is the person who can best address your concern.
  • Step 2: If you need further assistance with your concern, your school's principal / vice-principal is there to help.
  • Step 3: If you feel your concerns are not resolved, contact an Assistant Superintendent at 604-859-4891, ext.1233.
  • Step 4: If a decision of a district administrator significantly affects the education, health or safety of a student, the student and/or parent may appeal in writing to the Board of Education through the Secretary-Treasurer's office.  Email:

For further assistance please contact the local District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) or the BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) at 604-474-0524.
