Catholic Parent Involvement Committee

The Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (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 Logo

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.
