We represent parents on school council to engage with Alberta’s Education Ministry.


"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 shorter 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."

"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! "

Thank you for your October 3, 2016 letter announcing the release of the Alberta School Councils’ Association’s (ASCA) New School Council Resource Guide. I respect the time and effort your association has taken to create an updated document. It is also exciting to see that ASCA continues its work to encourage common practice and improve school council effectiveness in the province. I have shared copies of the New School Council Resource Guide with ministry staff.

— Education Minister David Eggen
