Engagement Task Force

School Council Engagement Task Force

Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA) Members:

For a fourth year the ASCA Board of Directors wishes to engage the organization’s member school councils in an advisory capacity through the School Council Engagement Task Force. This advisory collective is comprised of school council parents, identified by their school councils, who liaise on behalf of their school councils, with the Board of Directors. Over the past three years advisory engagement from member school councils has increased and the Board is hopeful this trend continues.

The Board sees tremendous value in a group of “on-the-ground” connected parents, engaged in education through their school council, to assist the ASCA with advocacy efforts. Access to a group of “readily available” members enables the Board to assess new directions for the Association, seek advice on advocacy approaches, and gather views on emerging education issues or trends. As stewards of the organization on your behalf the thoughts and advice provided by the task force are invaluable to the Board.

If you are a parent on an ASCA voting member school council and willing to be contacted by ASCA via email, willing to consult your school council with requests for information from ASCA and respond in a timely manner, and willing to propose advocacy direction for the Association, please submit your contact information prior to September 30, 2017 on the form below.

We look forward to working with you and your school council this year.

Thank you,

Allison Pike, President
