Dear OCASC members and interested parties,

On our OCASC Nov. 18 AGENDA we have 2 presentations and a very important item to discuss: 


  1. OCV School Council – return to in-person for semester 2
  2. Music at OCDSB – an update – Presentation from Jeannie Hunter, Music teacher and advocacy representative for Capital Region Music Festival.

Important Discussion:

We wanted to bring to your attention a motion that was brought forward by Trustee Wendy Hough and amended by Trustee Boothby and passed. 7 for (Trustees: Boothby, Scott, Schwartz, Hough, Jennekens, Penny and Blackburn) to 5 against (Trustees: Fisher, Bell, Lyra, Ellis, and Campbell)


THAT sections 2.1 and 2.2 of P.010.GOV, Community Involvement on Board Standing Committees, be amended to include a Parent Involvement Committee representative on the Committee of the Whole to replace the Ottawa-Carleton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC)

This motion was deferred and will be voted on next COW meeting on Dec. 9th, 2021. If this motion passes, OCASC will no longer be present at COW table and will not be able to provide input from councils directly to important discussions.
