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.
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:
resources to assist parents in understanding how school council’s work and what
their purpose is can be found below in the quick links.
