Destination 6

ASCA Board Vision Path 2021-2024

Destination 6

  • Destination: School Councils are reflections of the diversity in our Province. Parent voices are incorporated in the education system both locally and provincially, and are inclusive to parents of varying ethnic origin, ancestry, race, colour, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, political belief, marital status, socioeconomic status, and physical or mental ability.

Priorities for 2021-2024

The ASCA Board will:

  • Model safe, respectful and welcoming engagement practices and processes that facilitate the inclusive incorporation of diverse Member School Council perspectives.
    1. Action: Provide resources and materials for school councils containing inclusive language and encourage multiple methods of engagement and connection to their school communities.
    2. Action: Encourage and support school councils to provide a wide variety of information through different means and opportunities to all parents/guardians in their communities.

Action: By example and through resources, mentor school councils to be inclusive, safe spaces that fulfil their legislated roles while observing role and discussion boundaries, remaining non-partisan and being respectful of individuals’ beliefs, values, experiences and perspectives.
