Board-wide Parent Organizations

Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA) 

The Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA) is a volunteer group representing all Ottawa Catholic School Board parents. They are a resource for school councils and the parent community for information on local and provincial education issues. Through their website, Twitter feed, and email newsletters, they we provide updates on education in Ottawa & Ontario, as well as tips, resources and information to help parents support their children in school. All parents are welcome and encouraged to join CSPA's e-mail list, follow CSPA on Twitter, or attend CSPA monthly meetings.

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.
