Guest Speaker Michelle Aarts discusses having a voice and navigating the TDSB

Join us next week at the council meeting on Thursday, April 19th at 6:00pm when guest speaker Michelle Aarts from PIAC discusses a bunch of “How tos” within the TDSB:

1.  How to navigate resources for your child and connect with parents who have similar experiences.

2. How to have a voice in the TDSB including where to find information about TDSB public forums and feedback opportunities and how to be involved in education initiatives and advisory committees.

3. “How to” resources for school council – from running events to increasing parent engagement to running the administrative side of a council.

PIAC (Parent Involvement Advisory Committee) is an official (legislated) TDSB advisory committee that supports student success through parent engagement. They make recommendations to the TDSB regarding their engagement and communication with the parent community and school councils. PIAC members are parent volunteers and accomplish most of their goals through ‘working groups’ and the outreach of individual members in their TDSB Wards.
