What is Parents’ Committee?

PC Who

The Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board Parents’ Committee is a formal advisory body to the school board. Our Committee plays a significant role in enhancing parent involvement and supporting student achievement and well-being by being a direct link between parents, the school board and the Council of Commissioners.

According to Quebec’s Education Act, parents and guardians have a right to participate in the activities of their school board and to be represented on various school board committees. In order to accomplish this, every public school board in Quebec must establish a parents’ committee. At the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board this translates to each school having a parent representative. Our Committee elects an elementary and secondary Parent Commissioners, each representing their respective group of parents at the school board.

Our Commitment

The Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board Parents’Committee is committed to promoting partnerships that increase parent involvement and foster the physical, social, emotional and academic growth of our children. Our goal is to empower our students, supporting them for a lifetime of learning.

What is the process to join Parents’ Committee?

By September 30th each school must hold a General Assembly of Parents. During this assembly the parents elect Governing Board members from their parent community and then a representative to the Parents’ Committee from among the parent members of the Governing Board. An alternate is also elected representative. Their term of office is for one year.

It is important to note Parents’ Committee Representatives must be parents on the Governing Board, however, they are not elected by the Governing Board, nor solely by the parent members of the Governing Board. Any eligible parent or guardian who attends the assembly may vote for the person they feel will best represent them.
