Faith Community Advisory Committee
Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) is committed to the principles of equity through inclusive programs, curriculum, services, and operations. In addition, HWDSB believes in ensuring high levels of student, parent, community and staff participation, involvement and engagement contributing to student achievement and well-being. In support of our commitments, the Board of Trustees have established the Faith Community Advisory Committee.
HWDSB is currently seeking a volunteer member for the Faith Community Advisory Committee (FCAC). The Committee will meet at least once a year with a schedule determined by the Committee. The Committee will be responsible for providing the Board of Trustees with advice on specific areas of Board policy or program consistent with the Education Act and the policies of the Board, and on services that affect the educational success and well-being of HWDSB students.
At this time, we are seeking one parent, guardian, caregiver, or community leaders who can represent Indigenous Spirituality.
Individuals must be parents/guardians/caregivers or community leaders who have a strong affiliation to one or more HWDSB schools and a strong affiliation to the identified faith and/or spirituality area. Membership will be sought across the geography of HWDSB schools. Criteria for committee membership can be found below.
Applications for the Faith Community Advisory Committee will be accepted until October 14, 2022.
