School Council

School Council Mandate

The mandate of the School Council is to provide advice and recommendations to the principal and to the School Board as appropriate on priorities affecting the school community, within the limits of Ontario Ministry of Education and Training Memorandum No. 122 section 2.

Our responsibilities include advising the principal and School Board, where appropriate, on issues that may involve the school code of behaviour, curriculum and program goals, school budget, long-term planning and any other current issues that the council sees as a priority. Council members are to maintain a school-wide focus on all issues and are to communicate regularly with parents/guardians and members of the community. Council is to report their activities to the school community.

School councils play a vital role in the education system in Ontario. They provide a forum through which parents and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance.

Participating on the school council will be a rewarding experience for all those who value the opportunity to make a difference in their children’s education. 

There are currently no documents.
