School Council Purpose

Understanding the legislated role of school councils including which topics/areas are open for discussion and which require caution helps to prevent tension and dysfunction within a school council and the school community.
Learning how to identify the work of school councils, how to frame a “personal issue” from a school council perspective and how to broach sensitive topics is essential for new and returning members.

The School Council - Trustee Relationship

Understanding the relationship is vital to assist you in successfully furthering your role in the school community. School councils should understand the role of the school board Trustee, and the Trustee should be aware of their role on school council.
A Trustee is a valued partner who can share school board information with parents they represent, and gather valuable parent perspectives from division school councils.

The Work Of School Council

(It’s NOT About the Meeting)

School Councils often struggle with identifying the types of activities and work they should be doing in order to truly fulfill their legislated role.
In this workshop, school councils are encouraged to examine what they are doing in relation to their intended purpose and the intended result of their work, and then consider alternative means of including their school community.
