Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)

At the OCDSB, our Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) seeks to support, encourage and enhance parent engagement at the District level in order to improve student achievement and well-being. PIC serves an integral role within the District by providing parents with the opportunity to voice their concerns, ideas and challenges while promoting further parent involvement through events such as the OCDSB Speaker Series.

PIC Members

The committee is comprised of eight (8) Parent Members, three (3) Community Representatives, two (2) representatives of the Ottawa-Carleton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC), and up to five (5) non-voting members including one Trustee and the Director of Education. PIC will meet seven times this year. 

Next Steps — PIC Call for Members

We would like to thank all those who applied this year. The PIC Membership sub-committee will review the list of candidates for the parent member and community representative positions over the coming weeks. This school year PIC will appoint two community representatives and four parent members to fill the vacancies and replace members whose terms end as of November 30, 2017. 
PIC Members must have knowledge, skills and/or experience in ONE or more of the following areas: public education; community engagement; equity and inclusion strategies; and public policy and/or communications. They must have a strong interest in and commitment to public education, student achievement and well-being and be able to represent the views of a wide variety of parents. 

At the November 8, 2017 meeting, the PIC will consider the recommendations of the Membership Sub-Committee with the names of the successful candidates, along with the preferred term-of-office. Once final approval is received, we will reach out to the successful candidates by November 30, 2017
