Parent Liaison Committee (PLC)
The Parent Liaison Committee (PLC) is a multi-stakeholder committee, comprised of Governors, Parents and School Administrators. The PLC serves as a communication channel between parents and the Board of Governors. The PLC always welcomes constructive suggestions and recommendations from our parent community and ensures that strategic matters raised by parents are communicated appropriately to the Board. The PLC will receive correspondence via email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Where and when appropriate, the PLC may direct correspondence to other relevant persons or groups for further consideration or action according to their roles and responsibilities. In order for the PLC to process the received comments effectively, please note that the PLC will only accept individual correspondence from parents through their official @CDNIS email accounts and will not entertain any petitions or anonymous communications.
