Division Wide Learning

School Divisions can encourage learning opportunities for their school councils through the Alberta School Council Engagement (ASCE) grant. The government funds each school council with $500 to support and strengthen engagement with parents.

ASCA School Councils, Groups of School Councils Workshops are grant eligible.

School divisions can organize a "Level 1" School Council Workshop event for all of their school councils to attend, with each utilizing a portion of their allotted ASCE grant funding to pay for the learning.

ASCA values School Divisions paying for all of their school council memberships in ASCA and offers GROUP pricing to divisions that coordinate and bring their school councils together for learning. Eg. Council of School Councils (COSCs).

The fee structure is based on the number of school councils in the division, and aligned with the ASCE grant funding allocated to school councils. There is no limit on the number of attendees in the Workshop.

School councils can further their learning journey by booking additional ASCA "Level 1" or "Level 2" workshops directly, using the ASCE grant funds to fulfill their legislated responsibility, build capacity, and strengthen engagement and the parental voice in their schools.

ASCA Workshops for School Councils are offered online, scheduled weekly throughout the year (September 2022 to June 2023) for school councils’ registration. BOOK NOW
