Toronto Catholic District School Board


Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (CPIC)

CPIC is a provincially mandated and funded committee. The focus of the committee is to support student academic achievement through increased parent involvement.  Regulation 612/00 under the Education Act was amended in September 2010 to set out specific requirements regarding the composition of a Parent Involvement Committee. 


CPIC is a parent-led committee of volunteers who work both at the Board and at the Ward  level.   CPIC  members provide information and advice on parent engagement to the school board,  create initiatives that promote and facilitate parent engagement, and educate parents to support them in their children’s learning at home and/or at school.  They  collect information and ideas from wards, discuss the information at meetings and disseminate it to parents.


CPIC's Committee Composition 

  • 24 Parent Voting Members: Ward Representatives - elected by parents (two-year term)

  • 4 Parent Voting Members (at large) – elected by 24 Parent Members (one-year term)

  • 3 Community Voting Representatives - appointed by the committee one from OAPCE and/or the Archdiocese of Toronto  


The following are non-voting members:
