Catholic Parent Involvement Committee​​​



Mission​​​​

PICs are an important advisory body that operate as a direct link between parents and a board's director of education and its trustees. Where school councils focus on the local school and community, Parent Involvement Committees (PICs) participate at the board level and focus on things that affect more than one school.

 
PICs and school councils encourage parent involvement in their children's learning in support of student achievement and well-bein​g. Ontario Regulation 612/00 requires all Ontario school boards to establish a Parent Involvement Committee and outlines its composition, function and mandate. Education partners, including parents, were consulted during the development of the regulation.

 
In the 2005-2006 school year, the ministry establi​​​​​​​shed a Parent Engagement Office (PEO) to help develop and implement parent enga​gement initiatives across the province in support of student achievement and well-being. The government currently provides boards with $5,000 annual base funding and 17 cents per student to fund its PIC, as well as an additional $500 per school council to support parent engagement activities.​
