Parent Involvement Committee (PIC)

The Halton District School Board Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) recognizes the vital role parents play in the collaborative development and education of their children and in the success of schools. Therefore, PIC provides a regular opportunity for parents to network, share ideas,
offer input and enjoy informative presentations on education and related topics throughout the school year. PIC makes parental engagement a priority by providing ongoing support on a system-wide basis and promotes two-way communication and dialogue among School Councils, parents, staff, the Board of Trustees and members of the community.

Hayden's PIC rep is Sue Caya.
