Toronto Catholic District School Board


CSPC - Catholic School Parent Council


With approval from the Board, the Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC) recently underwent a name change to Catholic School Parents Council (CPSC). News items & resource documents uploaded prior to September 1st, 2015 may have their titles changed to reflect Catholic School Parents Council (CSPC), the text contained within the documents and pages may still contain the name Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC).  Please note that these two titles are synonymous.



The Toronto Catholic District School Board believes that schools must foster the spiritual, physical, intellectual, social and emotional development of all students by using the various resources of the community of which they are a part.


That schools must draw on the vast knowledge and expertise available in the community and involve its many resources, especially the family and the parish, in the schooling of children. That working together collaboratively is a way a living which is deeply rooted in God's Word; That the establishment of Catholic School Parent Councils is congruent with the spirit of its present policy on parent and community involvement, with its four strategic directions (Gospel Values, Collaborative Leadership, Decentralized Decision-Making and Transforming the Learning Experience) and with the spirit of the Building Bridges initiative; That Catholic School Parent Councils can be the vehicle for empowering the school community to actively acknowledge its resources and utilize them in support of student learning;


That Catholic School Parent Councils can be the forum through which parents and community can have a voice in education of children. Therefore, a properly constituted Catholic School Parent Council shall be established in each school, subject to the requirements of the Education Act and the TCDSB Policies, Guidelines and Operating Procedures for Catholic School Parent Councils, and shall function in an advisory role to the school principal and, where appropriate, to the Board.


Catholic School Parent Councils shall bring appropriate community resources into the school and shall recognize the right of parents to participate in the Catholic education of their children.
