OCSB Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)

The Ottawa Catholic School Board Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is a provincially mandated committee made up of parents, a trustee, a principal and the Director of Education. The purpose of PIC is to support, encourage and enhance parent engagement at the school board level in order to improve student achievement and well-being. The parent members of the OCSB PIC are appointed by CSPA. 

Learn more about OCSB's PIC on the PIC page of the Board website.

The Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA) 
is a volunteer group representing the parents in our school board. We are a resource for school councils and the parent community for information on local and provincial education issues. Through our website, Twitter, and email newsletters we provide updates on education in Ottawa & Ontario; plus we share great tips, resources and information to help parents support their children in school. All parents are welcome and encouraged to join our e-mail list, follow us on Twitter or attend CSPA monthly meetings.

Council Meeting Information

The Council works to build the school community by: establishing goals that are in the best interest of the school, fundraising as necessary to meet these goals, providing feedback to the board and administration on school programs and policies, and representing the interests of parents and students. The School Council is composed of parent volunteers and a small number of staff including: a teacher representative, a non-teaching representative, the principal, and the vice principal. 

Council meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month in the learning commons starting at 6:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend to gain a better understanding of council related topics, the school routines and culture, or to contribute your perspective to the discussion. If you are unable to attend personally, you can share your thoughts and ideas with a council member to present on your behalf. Minutes are posted on the website.
