Alberta School Councils Association (ASCA) Policy
ASCA Advocacy Policy
ASCA members bring forward issues, in the form of resolutions, at the annual general meeting. If the resolution is endorsed or voted in by the majority of the assembly at the meeting, it becomes policy. This policy forms the basis for advocating change to the Ministry of Education.
Policies are added and updated each year after the Annual General Meeting in the ASCA Policy Manual. It contains a complete record of all policies passed in the history of the Association. The manual also indicates overarching advocacy policy statements regarding specific topic areas.
Outdated, or obsolete policies can be addressed at the Annual General Meeting, in the form of “housekeeping items”, for review and updates by the membership.
The Annual Advocacy Update outlines the committee(s) participation that ASCA has presented its member school council’s advocacy positions on throughout the year.
Position statements are presented utilizing the policies in the association advocacy manual - generated from member resolutions presented and passed at the AGM each year.
