CSPA Executive Elections will be held at the October 26th CSPA meeting. Why don't you join our team?
CSPA Executive members are school council members who represent their school on our committee. If you are willing to lend a hand, are interested in specific education issues, or in getting a broader board-wide perspective of Catholic Education, CSPA Executive is the place for you.
CSPA Executive meets monthly prior to the CSPA general meeting. Our meetings are held at OCSB, 570 West Hunt Club Road. Members have the opportunity to participate in Board committees and work together to help organize educational events for parents. Learn more about CSPA Executive roles and responsibilities. Contact us for details.
