School Council Information

The Halton District School Board values the involvement of parents, guardians and ​community members in providing a quality education for students. School councils are established in each school to encourage and facilitate this involvement. Research has shown that the involvement of parents and guardians in their children’s education has a positive impact on improved student learning and helps create a sense of community at the school. The support of the community has also proven to be an enhancement to that positive learning environment. By working together as partners, we can encourage greater academic achievement and prepare our students for success as responsible, participating citizens of the global community.

Role of School Council

School councils are an advisory body functioning under Ministry of Education Ontario Regulation 612/00 and board policy. The council’s role, in collaboration with the principal, staff and community, is to provide input and advice with regard to school goals and to enhance learning opportunities, through various activities, for the benefit of all students in the school.

Their membership reflects the school and community and includes parents and guardians of students, the principal, a teacher, a student representative (secondary school councils), a non-teaching school staff member as well as members from the community at large. Parents and/or guardians must make up the majority of council members.
