Education is a partnership involving parents, students, teachers, principals, community and school boards.
School councils provide advice on school matters and help to strengthen the important relationship between schools, parents/guardians and their communities.
All members of the school community are welcome to attend council meetings. Parents/guardians and community members are key to a successful school council. Getting involved gives you the opportunity to be part of a team working to ensure a high quality of education. School councils are supported in their work through various resources available online or through the school administrator.
This is just one way families can get involved to support students and schools. Learn about other things you can do to engage with your child’s learning at home and at school.
