Mississauga-Brampton South Parents Getting Involved in their School Community

Published on September 22, 2015 with No Comments

Ontario is helping more parents in Mississauga-Brampton South get involved in their children’s education and school community.

This year, the province is providing 24 Parents Reaching Out (PRO) grants to as many local school councils, amounting to more than $23,300, to help more parents connect and engage with their children’s learning. The grants will support projects that help parents respond to important issues in their local communities, such as bullying, student nutrition, literacy and math. They also help address barriers parents may face to participate in their child’s education, such as language and transportation.

Twenty-four schools in Mississauga-Brampton South have been approved for local projects in schools.


“The Parents Reaching Out grants are important investments to help Mississauga-Brampton South parents get more involved in their children’s learning, helping our students succeed and our communities thrive.” —Amrit Mangat, MPP for Mississauga-Brampton South


 Studies show that when parents are more engaged in their children’s education, students are more likely to earn higher grades, develop better behaviour and social skills, and achieve higher levels of education.

 Since 2006, Ontario has provided more than 17,000 PRO grants to school councils and 684 regional/provincial grants – a total investment of more than $27.5 million.

 Ontario’s elementary students continue to improve their results, with 72 per cent of Grade 3 and 6 students meeting or exceeding the provincial standard in reading, writing and math.
