School Council Election Procedures
A new “School Councils” regulation under the Education Act, which came into effect in December 2000, sets out specific requirements regarding the composition of school councils and election processes. We began to follow the outlined process in the fall of 2001, and we continue to ensure that the obligations set out in the regulations will be observed. One of the requirements of the regulation is that the school council elections must take place within the first 30 days of each school year.
At St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School, we invite you to consider nominating yourself, or another parent candidate. Please select and complete the appropriate form as attached and forward it to the attention of the principal by September 28, 2020. The principal will confirm the receipt of the nomination.
Should we receive more than 12 nominations, we will hold an election on Tuesday, September 30, 2020. If we receive 12 nominations or less, and all candidates fulfill the requirements as outlined in the new regulation, they will be acclaimed and the school community will be informed of the membership.
The date of the first meeting will be Monday, October 5, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. Location to be determined. All are welcome!
We look forward to working closely with the new St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School Council, to a supportive team of individuals dedicated to children and the preservation of Catholic Education, and to a fulfilling and productive 2020-2021 school year!
M.C. (Kit) Comuzzi, Principal (Acting)
