What is a School Council?
A school council is a collective association of parents, teachers, principals and community
representatives who seek to work together to promote the well-being and effectiveness of
the entire school community and thereby to enhance student learning. A school council is a
means to facilitate cooperation among all the concerned participants in the school.
What do School Councils do?
The school council may advise the principal on matters such as fiscal management,
educational standards, policies and procedures, rules and objectives and any matter
relating to the school. The council works together to facilitate communication, planning and
resource allocation regarding priorities and programs. The council plans special events
such as pizza lunches for fundraising.
Can any parent come to school council meetings?
