WRDSB Parent Involvement Council

The Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) of the Waterloo Region District School Board invites parents/guardians of students currently enrolled in a WRDSB school to apply for positions on the WRDSB Parent Involvement Committee.  The mandate for the WRDSB Parent Involvement Committee is to:

  • Provide information and advice on parent engagement to the Waterloo Region District School Board;
  • 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.

PIC meets at least four times a year to advise the Waterloo Region District School Board 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.
