School Council Members

The St. Clare School Council is an elected group of parents mandated by the provincial government to consult and/or advise the school on issues dealing with the current education system. School Council meetings are open to all parents who are interested in becoming involved in the school community and who wish to play a greater role in the programs the School Council supports in the school. Every year the School Council undertakes one major fundraising event and various social events for the school community. The funds generated from these events are distributed to the school for the benefit of all the students.

Parents and guardians are encouraged and welcome to attend School Council meetings. These meeting dates are regularly published in the monthly school newsletter; please try to fit them into your schedule. Please consider becoming an active member of your child's school by joining the School Council or helping at one of our events during the year.

OCSB Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)

The Ottawa Catholic School Board Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is a provincially mandated committee made up of parents, a trustee, a principal and the Director of Education. The purpose of PIC is to support, encourage and enhance parent engagement at the school board level in order to improve student achievement and well-being. The parent members of the OCSB PIC are appointed by CSPA. 

The Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA)
 is a volunteer group representing the parents in our school board. We are a resource for school councils and the parent community for information on local and provincial education issues. Through our website, Twitter, and email newsletters we provide updates on education in Ottawa & Ontario; plus we share great tips, resources and information to help parents support their children in school. All parents are welcome and encouraged to join our e-mail list, follow us on Twitter or attend CSPA monthly meetings.

Visit the CSPA website to learn more about CSPA and the work we do to support parents and their children in our schools.
