Advocating for Education 101 Presented by Surrey DPAC

Education impacts every single person in our community. In this free session, we will explore why it’s important to be informed and understand our education system. Surrey Students Now, a group of concerned parents just like you, have jumped through many of the hoops and we see how dizzying the information can be. It doesn’t have to be that way. We have taken all the information in and can share it with you in a succinct manner. Advocacy can be done by everyone, in various ways. From writing an email, or speaking at a Board of Education meeting and everything in between, you can have an impact on education in Surrey.

Have you asked yourself any of these questions?

What are the true costs of having children learn in portables? 

Is my school over capacity? (if there are portables, the answer is yes) 

Do portables affect my child if they are in classroom in the school building? (yes, let us explain) 

How is my child’s school making accommodations to manage being over capacity? 

How much playground, library, or gym time does my child get at school each week? 

Does my child have needs that aren’t being sufficiently supported, whether social, developmental or academic? 

We invite you to learn how to be a champion for your child and your child’s school.
