The Ottawa-Carleton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC) is an umbrella organisation for school councils and parents in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) to share information and facilitate communication within the OCDSB communities to enhance the education of all its students.

OCASC provides the following services to school councils:

  • sharing information: the ever-popular “Chalk-It-Up” sessions provide an opportunity for school councils to share experiences, problems and solutions, best practices, and contact information
  • facilitating communication about current board activities and to provide input to board committees through OCASC’s representatives on the many OCDSB committees
  • representing its membership to board staff and trustees directly and through our representatives on the OCDSB’s committees
