Announcing the release of the NEW

School Council Resource Guide


Download the School Council Resource Guide (PDF file 306 KB)

This Guide replaces the Alberta School Council Resource Manual released in 2006, revised 2007.



More than an updated version, the new Guide is 20 pages (not 104 as in the old manual), and is designed as a digital document containing (over 40) electronic links to relevant resources.


It encompasses all elements relating to school council as indicated in the original manual, and serves as a compact, concise handbook when printed in (economical greyscale) hardcopy as well.


As the current School Act and corresponding Regulations are still in effect, little has changed in the content prescribing school councils in Alberta. Integrity of the original resource has been maintained and is meant to be updated annually going forward.


What has changed are the relevant resources available that align with Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA) materials utilized in workshops, webinars and the website.


Although this Guide is not about ASCA, consistency of language, definition and direction will encourage common practice and enhance school council effectiveness in the province.


A valuable resource for the entire education and school(s) community, ASCA is proud to provide this resource publication, and welcomes your feedback. Please click here to submit any comments and/or suggestions regarding the Guide.

Comments about the new Guide:


"I shared the new School Council Resource Guide with our school administrators yesterday. Congratulations on a job well done! The handbook is succinct, clear and user-friendly. 

Whether you are new to school council or a continuing member this is an excellent orientation and reference tool.  

Thank you for this excellent resource! "

"I found this to be a very informative resource, that was easy to read and clear. Although I have looked through the 2007 version it was overwhelming in length. This being much shorted allows the whole document to be reviewed easily, and then sections to be reviewed in greater detail as needed by using the link. As an inexperienced Chair I appreciate this resource and the layout." S. Anderson
