School Council Election By-Laws 2020-2021
What is a School Council?
“School Councils play a vital role in the education system in Ontario. They provide a forum through which parents and other members of the school community can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance” (Ministry of Education, ON).
What do we do?
We volunteer, advise, fundraise, share skills and resources, encourage and build our community while focusing on the best interest of all students.
Types of membership
General Parent Members are all school parents. You are welcome to attend meetings, share your ideas and participate in discussions and on the committees. General parent members provide input and feedback to the Council but will not be able to vote officially.
If you can not attend the meetings, please consider volunteering. Volunteers make a world of difference! Here are some ways you can help: field trips supervision, pizza lunches, council organized activities and events, information and resource sharing.
Members at Large are parent members who attend meetings, share their ideas and discussions, and have voting rights.

School councils are an excellent way for parents to get involved in their child`s education. Our school has an elected school council that is an important forum for involving all members of the school community in issues that affect the education of students. The school council is made up of an elected committee of parents, staff and student representatives, appointed community members, the principal, and a general membership which includes all parents of children attending the school. The school council advises the principal on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after school activities, and criteria for selection of new principals.
School Council Meetings
The meeting dates will be sent out through TDSB School Messenger.
