School councils in Alberta benefit from the advocacy, support and services Alberta School Councils' Association (ASCA) provides.
School councils seeking general information can consult the Alberta School Council Resource Guide 2016 (English) or (French) Guide des conseils d'école de l'Alberta. The resource guide provides information about the education system in Alberta, roles and responsibilities of various participants in education and specific information on school councils.
ASCA provides a confidential phone consultation line to obtain additional information, resources and support for school councils.
