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

This page provides links to presentations and websites regarding Parenting Resources which parents may find useful. All the information was either delivered at CSPA meetings or given at CSPA-hosted parenting events, and is available for parents to view and download.
