Parent Involvement Committee Survey 2014

For over 15 years, People for Education has used annual surveys to keep track of things like parent involvement and the effects of policy and funding changes on our schools. This year, for the first time, we are surveying Parent Involvement Committees (PICs) and Comités de participation des parents (CPPs).

Working with Parents partenaires en education (PPE) and an advisory committee of PIC/CPP members from across Ontario, we have developed this survey in order to learn more about the work that PICs/CPPs do to support parent involvement in their school boards.

The surveys have been sent to PIC/CPP chairs across the province. If you have any questions about the Parent Involvement Committee Survey, please contact

2013-14 school survey

Thank you so much for completing this survey and being part of People for Education’s research. For over 16 years, People for Education has been using our annual school surveys to keep track of the effects of policy and funding changes in Ontario’s publicly funded schools.

Each participating school will receive an electronic copy of the 2014 Annual Report on Ontario’s Publicly Funded Schools.

Individual school responses will remain confidential. Only overall results will be published.

Each year, we publish the data we collect, along with other research findings in our Annual Report on Ontario’s Publicly Funded Schools and topical reports. Our reports are quoted widely in the media and used by boards of education, the Ministry of Education, politicians, parents and citizens.

Our goals are to engage parents, educators and the broader public in thinking about education policy, and to shine a light on the wide range of factors that affect students’ chances for success at school and in life. Working together, we’ll make our schools the best places for students to learn and grow.
