What is the School Council?
Parent Council? Home and School Association?
A rose by any other name
a school council is not just another school council, designed to fund
raise for the school and to provide a forum for volunteers. Certainly,
those functions are important parts of parent participation, but a school
council is more than that.
council is a legislated body, established under the provincial School
Act, that gives parents an official, and required, voice in their child's
school. The School Act empowers School Councils to work together to promote
the well-being and effectiveness of the entire school community and thereby
to enhance student learning. Parents and the school community have an
opportunity, through the school council, to advise and consult with the
principal. Through school councils, Albertans assume an advisory role
in education matters ranging from academic programs to school policies
and budgeting. A School Council should facilitate communication among
all of the concerned participants of a school community so that they may
work together, as partners, to create an effective learning environment
and enable the students to achieve their potential.
If you are
interested in participating in Balmoral's School Council, please attend
one of the monthly meetings.
