re: Parent Advisory Committee

This is a reminder to the parents of ALM that at this time the school does not have an official PAC. This Is something that needs to be organized by the parents and once that happens meeting invites can be sent out to all concerned parties. (virtual or otherwise).

The PAC has had very important and supportive role historically and is something that improves not only community relations, but the experience of the students. That said, I have had the installation of security cameras sitting on my desk since last spring. In order to get security cameras installed Steve Goffic would need a letter giving him and the district written permission.

Can a PAC representative please put together a letter of support for this. If you have any questions you can contact the school or myself directly.

Sincerely and Haawa,

Will Bedard
Principal of ALM

PS - here is an email that was supposed to be shared at the first PAC meeting.

Dear, Parents' Advisory Council
School District No 50 is looking to add video surveillance to Agnes L. Mathers Elementary for reasons of enhancing the safety of students, staff, and others on school premises, and deterring destructive acts. School District No 50 recognizes both its legal obligations to provide appropriate levels of supervision in the interests of student safety and the fact that students and staff have privacy rights that are reduced, but not eliminated, while at school. Thus video surveillance must be carried out in a way that respects student and staff privacy rights.
A recording is recognized to be subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA).
School District No 50 is asking The Parents' Advisory Council (PAC) for permission to add nine cameras to the school. Seven cameras will be added to the exterior of the building. with efforts made to not have residential homes in the camera shots. Two cameras will be added to the interior of the building: one covering the hallway and one covering the front entrance. Efforts will be made to not have view of classrooms or offices in the camera shots.
