School Council

About School Council

School councils consist primarily of:

  • parents
  • principals
  • teachers

School council members work together to support and enhance student learning. They provide a way for members of the community to consult with and offer advice to principals and school boards.

School councils:

  • are a bridge between the school and community
  • 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

School councils are legislated under the Education Act and are mandatory for all schools in the public education system, including charter schools.
