Alberta’s School Community Connection
School councils are the bridge connecting parents and community members to the school.
Representing parents on school councils in Alberta, the Alberta School Councils’ Association’s (ASCA)
MISSION is: “To engage and empower Alberta school councils while advocating for the parent voice in the education system”, and
BELIEVES: “Parents are recognized and respected as knowledgeable, supportive contributors to their children’s education, and are provided a variety of opportunities to be authentically engaged in all levels of the education system”, with a
VISION of: A respected and empowered school council in every Alberta school.
ASCA provides resources and support to further this vision, promoting positive relationships between parents, teachers, principals, central office personnel and school trustees.
ASCA's role evolved to promote and support strong school communities with effective school councils to facilitate collaborations among education partners and enhance student learning.
A non-profit society, the ASCA is governed by an elected, volunteer board of directors comprised of parents on school councils from across Alberta. Required by the Education Act, school councils must exist in every school operated by a board. ASCA members are school councils from rural, urban, metro, public, separate, charter and francophone schools.
The ASCA Partner Sponsoring Program is intended for organizations looking to reach Alberta’s school community audience including parents, community members, students, teachers, principals, superintendents, school board trustees, government and organizations involved in public education.
ASCA seeks financial support through partner sponsoring to ensure viability and long-term sustainability.
In return for sponsorship, your organization will become a visible partner with the Association, aligning with our principles, values, and mandate, and connecting with Alberta’s school community.
