Catholic School Councils – APSC001
Reviewed/Revised: October 2015
The Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) recognizes that education is a shared responsibility involving school staff, students and their families, and members of the community and parish. The purpose of school councils is, through the active participation of parents, to improve pupil achievement, well-being and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents. It is expected that Catholic School Councils will provide a forum for people interested in Catholic Education to work cooperatively together to develop common goals at the board and school level. It is the policy of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board that every school within its jurisdiction shall have a Catholic School Council to act in an advisory capacity to the school principal to improve the overall effectiveness
of the school. The WCDSB Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (CPIC) will also act in an advisory capacity to the Waterloo Catholic District School Board through the Director of Education or designate to improve the Catholic Education System.
