Parent Advisory Committee (School Council)
Iron River School welcomes the participation of parents in the PAC. The PAC is organized in September. Parents wishing to serve the school are encouraged to attend the meetings and to become involved. The Parent Advisory Committee meetings will be announced in the newsletter and are attended by the principal.
The PAC serves as an advisory body to the administration of the school. Minutes from the meetings are available in the office. While every parent is a member of the PAC, there needs to be a core group of three parents that hold positions on the committee. These positions are:
- Chairperson – responsible for overall maintenance of the parent council, chairing the meetings and has signing authority on the accounts of the society.
- Vice-Chairperson – chairs the meetings in the absence of the Chairperson and assists with other duties.
- Secretary / Treasurer – records and maintains the minutes from the meetings; responsible for the accounts of the society (deposits & cheques) and presents a financial summary at each meeting; has signing authority on accounts.
