Parent Participation Organization
What is the (PPO) - Parent Participation Organization?
The Parent Participation Organization gives the opportunity to a larger number of parents to be more directly involved in the life of a school.
What are the Functions of the Parent Participation Organization?
The purpose of the PPO is as follows:
- To encourage parents’ participation in fostering their child's success
- To encourage the collaboration of parents in developing, implementing and evaluating the school's educational project
- To help by volunteering in our hot lunch program, reading to students, library participation, fundraising, organizing special activities and events for students
As well, it may advise the parent members on the governing board about parents' concerns. The governing board parent members may consult the PPO when additional input from parents is needed (s.96-3).
The Parent Participation Organization can play a valuable role and support the work of the governing board by effectively communicating with the parent body at large
The PPO is open to all parents of students in the school.
