When parents/guardians are involved in their children’s education, everyone benefits – students, parents, teachers, schools and communities. Great schools can become even better places to teach and learn, and student achievement often improves. Parent engagement includes placing an emphasis on making learning an important part of a child’s day, supporting students at home and at school, and participating in the life of the classroom, school, and community. Parents sometimes need guidance in knowing how to best support their child with their school work. Opportunities for additional involvement are not always clear. This webpage provides parents in our school community with helpful resources that have proven to be effective in improving the relationship between parent and student.
The Catholic School Parents' Association (CSPA) strives to seek an education of the highest quality for each child in the Ottawa Catholic School Board. See how the CSPA works closely with our Board to help engage parents/guardians in our schools.
