DRAPCE is the regional association in Dufferin-Peel for OAPCE, The Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education.
DRAPCE’s goal is to facilitate communication and promote parent engagement and share information amongst the OAPCE reps in the DPCDSB Catholic School Councils.
Do you have an OAPCE representative appointed on your council?
The OAPCE Representative provides the link from the parents in the school to the OAPCE regional council for Dufferin-Peel. When an OAPCE representative is not present, the role defaults to the school council chair.
In light of the great efforts that are being made to preserve our publicly funded Catholic Education, it is important to have a voice to represent the parents of your school. Read more about OAPCE at www.oapce.org
Meeting dates - Regional council DRAPCE
Here in Dufferin-Peel we have an active volunteer group, DRAPCE. DRAPCE is an information sharing council with OAPCE representatives drawn from the school councils in the DPCDSB. Every parent and guardian with a child enrolled in the Board is welcome to attend our meetings. The provincial OAPCE directors bring information about new initiatives in Catholic education to our meetings and we then share this information with our own school councils. Parents also learn from and share information about our local successes with each other. If you are not able to make the meetings visit our webpage for information or email us for recent minutes and meeting documents. Register for meetings on line at www.drapce.com.
