School District #83 is composed of both urban and rural schools, each with their own challenges.

The school district has formed an Urban-Rural Challenge Task Force to provide a report to the school board  on the educational, financial, human resource and organizational challenges of the urban-rural reality of its schools. As well, it will look at what values and core goals for our educational environment are envisioned.

The District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) is looking for two parent representatives, one urban and one rural, to represent the school district’s parents on this task force. These representatives will reflect the thoughts and views that best represent most parents within the urban or rural demographic. In the event of multiple applications for these two positions, the DPAC executive will make the final selection.

All parents/guardians of students attending a school within School District #83 are welcome to apply.

Other members include: Glenn Borthistle, superintendent; Jen Wilchuk, trustee; Larissa Lutjen, trustee, and principal representatives Scott Anderson, Jeff Abbott, Jodi Garries, Gene Doray and Rob MacAulay.

There will be two finance reps, two DPAC reps and two teacher reps on the committee as well.

The application deadline is today, Friday, Oct. 16. For expressions of interest, questions or comments, please email:  sd83dpac@gmail.com.
