Issue Resolutions submission deadline for AGM 2018

Time: All Day

Each year, on behalf of parents, school councils and groups of school councils meet regularly in Alberta and discuss education issues that affect the learning successes of their children.
To influence change to these issues at the provincial level, school councils/CoSCs* can send the issues to the ASCA office in order that they can be considered, discussed and debated by school council delegates** province-wide at the ASCA Annual General Meeting.
Advocacy statements that receive majority support from ASCA voting delegate parent council members*** at the AGM become directives for action or belief statements that inform the provincial advocacy work of the ASCA Board and are also utilized by ASCA representatives at provincial education advisory committee meetings to represent the collective parent voice.
