What is a School Council?
School councils consist of parents, principals, teachers, secondary students and community representatives who work together to support and enhance student learning. They provide a way for members of the community to consult with and offer advise to the principal and the school boards.
Focus on what is best for all students in the school
Consider the interests of all school stakeholders
Develop, maintain and reflect the culture of the school
Represent the parent voice in the school community
Each school board should have a school council. School councils are legislated under Section 22 of the School Act.
What is the Role of Parents?
Parents play an important role in student success. School councils allow parents to participate in decisions that impact student learning. By contributing knowledge, perspective and ideas at school council meetings, parents are actively contributing to the success of the school community.
Parents of students enrolled in the school must make up the majority of the school council. School councils may also decide to include one or more parents of children enrolled in an Early Childhood Services (ECS) program at the school or other individuals who have an interest in the school.
