According to the publication Planning Parent Engagement, A Guidebook for Parents and Schools, when parents are engaged in their child’s learning, students do better in school and everyone benefits. Parents find it easier to help their child learn. Teachers and principals are better supported and enjoy positive relationships with students.
The HPEDSB Parent Involvement Committee is committed to supporting active parent engagement in schools. The PIC promotes successful practices for managing effective school councils.
The PIC is a parent-led committee of the board established in accordance with provincial legislation. The committee mandate is to support, encourage and enhance parent engagement at the board level in order to improve student achievement and well-being. The PIC also engages with school councils at each school.
Congratulations to the new Executive!
