The 2015 PISA Tests

This spring, randomly selected 15 year old students in Prince Edward Island schools will be writing PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) tests.

PISA testing is administered independently in Canada by the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC) and it is CMEC that selects which students at which schools will be writing the test. PISA testing is overseen internationally by the OECD, and there's an FAQ on its website that explains the basics of the testing.

PEIHSF Television Commercial

Here's a television commercial that will be airing on the CBC in Prince Edward Island in the days and weeks to come:

The commercial has its roots in a parent leadership project of the Bluefield Family of Schools: parent and educator members of the local associations in that family of schools wanted to encourage engagement by parents and guardians in their child's education, both directly and through home and school. The commercial serves as a reminder of both.

Parent Leadership Grant Program

About the Parent Leadership Grant Program

Children whose parents are involved in the school perform better and have higher career and education goals.  Research shows that when it comes to education, parents matter.

To enhance the participation of all parents in their children’s learn, the PEI Home and School Federation offers Parent Leadership Grants to local home and school associations at Prince Edward Island Schools.

Deadlines and Amounts

The grants are subject to eligibility criteria, and are competitive: there are two competition deadlines: October 21, 2016 and January 27, 2017.

Home and school associations may apply individually or in partnership with other home and schools.  The maximum amount that can be requested is $1000 and there is a limit of one successful grant per school per academic  year. 

Opportunity to Join PEIHSF Subcommittees

The board of the PEI Home and School Federation has established a collection of board subcommittees consisting of representatives of the board, of local home and school associations, and of partners in the education system.

If you are interested in helping to shape PEIHSF policy and to influence policy and practice in the education system on PEI at a provincial level, volunteering to join a subcommittee is an excellent opportunity; the time committment is not great and you'll be working with people who are deeply engaged in public education.

Please content the subcomittee chairs listed on our subcommittee page to express your interest.
