Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)
The Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is a group made up of parents, trustees, principals and the director of education for this Board. As mandated by the Ministry of Education, PIC’s role is to support, encourage and enhance meaningful family involvement in their child(ren)’s education. In particular, PIC focuses on families who find this more challenging because of socio-economic, time and/or language barriers. They do this by providing support, guidance and resources for school councils. PIC also acts as a link, providing feedback from parents and school councils to the Board. PIC also reviews and advises on Board plans that relate to parent, family and community engagement.
PIC is always recruiting interested parents from throughout the District who are willing to make commitment to the Committee. If you have School Council experience (a bit, some or a lot), PIC wants you! If not, this could be a great committee to gain hands-on experience and valuable skills.
