Every school has a school council—a group focused on helping all students succeed.
School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.
Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee.
Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your child’s educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s education, the level of student achievement increases.
Any and all parents are invited to come to Council Meetings. These meetings are held in the school library from 5:30 – 6:30pm. They will be clearly advertised in the calendar, in the newsletter and on the web page.
For those parents wishing to make a delegation to the Council please contact the principal at least 5 business days prior to the meeting for inclusion on the agenda. Parents arriving at meetings wishing to delegate who have not followed this procedure will have their item tabled as 'New Business' for inclusion in the next School Council's agenda at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
