Part of CSPA's mandate is to provide information school councils and parents in order to support the success of all students.  Research shows that students will be more successful when their parents are more involved with their education.

This page provides links to presentation materials from CSPA events hosted throughout the school year.  This page is continually being updated throughout the school year as we receive materials from our speakers.  It may take time to receive materials and post them, we appreciate your patience.  Note that if there is an expiry date on the material it will be indicated in brackets.
