ECSD recognizes the rights of parents to be involved in their children’s education and for parents, community members and school staff to be involved in key decisions about the education of students. In each school in the Division, parents and the school community are to be provided with the opportunity to establish and maintain a school council. School councils have a role in advising and consulting with the Principal on any matter relating to the school.
A school council is a collective association of parents, teachers, principals, staff, students (where appropriate), and community representatives who seek to work together to promote the well-being and effectiveness of the entire school community and thereby to enhance student learning. A school council provides a means to facilitate cooperation among all the concerned participants in the local school.
Meetings are held approximately every 5-6 weeks. A save the date invitation can be found on your child's Google classroom. The agenda and the invitation is sent out to all parents prior to the meeting. Please consider joining or at the very least, attending and participating in the meeting.
