Your school council is a way that you can get involved in being an advocate for your children’s education. The School Council serves as another vital link in the connection of students, schools, families and the community. Being able to hear, discuss and clarify what is happening within the school provides parents another way to nurture and support the education being offered at the school.

School councils were established in 1995, to increase parent and community involvement in the education of children in Alberta. Public schools, including charter schools, are required to attempt to establish school councils. (Alberta Education, School Councils page). Here is a video link of demonstrating effective school councils in action:
