ROLE OF SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL
The School Community Council acts in an advisory role to the school, the Board and other agencies
and organizations. The primary purpose of the School Community Council is to:
 
•    develop shared responsibility for the learning success and well-being of all children and
      youth; and,
•    encourage and facilitate parent and community engagement in school planning and improvement
     processes.

 

The School Community Council:

 

  • is elected
  • integrated in the Board of Education decision-making processes
  • guided by common standards included in legistlation, Board policy and procedures
  • inclusive in the community
  • addresses key matters that make a difference in student learning and well-being
  • is accountable, transparent and responsive in its relationship with parents and school community
  • does not do fundraising - the council is given a $2200 budget each year by the provincial government to support learning initiatives in the school.  Fundraising is handled by the Parent Council.
  • is not a place for individual concerns to be addressed - those concerns are best handled by the teacher first, then the Principal.
