Parents Reaching Out (PRO) Grants

A+ A-

School councils across HWDSB are welcoming even more families to innovative engagement opportunities thanks to funding through the Ministry of Education’s Parents Reaching Out (PRO) Grants.

Ontario’s PRO Grants are designed to support parents in identifying barriers to parent engagement in their own community and to find local solutions to involve more parents in support of student achievement and well-being.

HWDSB received $44,300 for the 2018-19 Parents Reaching Out (PRO) Grants. This funding is to support 40 School Council ($39,800) and 1 Regional/Provincial project(s) ($4,500).
