Join the Parent Involvement Committee

The Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is now accepting applications until June 1st.

PIC invites parents/guardians of students currently enrolled in one of the WRDSB schools OR community members who do not have children currently enrolled in a WRDSB school to apply for positions on the committee.

The goal of PIC is to have members who are committed to engaging all parents in supporting their children’s learning, are enthusiastic about education, and are representative of our region. Strong communication and leadership skills, and the ability to work as part of a team are also valued. You do not have to be a member of a school council to be a member of the Parent Involvement Committee.

The mandate for the WRDSB Parent Involvement Committee is to:

  • Provide information and advice on parent engagement to the WRDSB;
  • Communicate with and support school councils of the Board through the Waterloo Region Assembly of Public School Councils (WRAPSC);
  • Undertake activities to help parents support their child’s learning at home and at school.

This volunteer committee meets at least six times per year to advise the WRDSB on policies and issues of concern to parents and to make suggestions to schools, School Councils, and the Board regarding parent engagement that supports student achievement.

Please visit the PIC website to learn more or to apply online.

If you are interested in applying or have any questions, we invite you to a casual drop-in information session on Tuesday, May 22 from 5:30 to 6:20 p.m. in the Cambridge Room at the WRDSB Education Centre (51 Ardelt Avenue, Kitchener).  The Cambridge Room is to your immediate left as you enter through the main sliding doors.  We look forward to meeting you!
