About Our School Council

Catholic School Councils are legally constituted bodies of elected and appointed representatives of the local school community established for the purposes of developing, encouraging and promoting activities which will enhance the quality of school programs and improve the levels of student achievement.

The school’s mandate is to work toward ensuring the best possible education for all students within that school. The school council provides a structure in which parents, principal, teachers, non-teaching staff representative, parish representative, students and community members can talk about education in their community. The school council is also a vehicle by which everyone in the school community has a voice in educational issues.

ROLES
It is the role of the school council to:
– Work with the school’s mission statement and goals rather than on day-to-day
management of the school;
– Ensure that school programs and priorities meet the school community’s expectations.
– Consult with the school community on setting priorities, strategies and performance
measures;
– Advise the principal and the school board as per Regulation 612/00, school board policy
and this operations manual;
– Consult with other school councils and education partners on wider issues;
– Share information with the school community, other school councils and the School
Board.
