​School Councils 

There is a School Council in every Grand Erie District School Board school. This representative group of parents allows the community to be involved in the discussion of education issues and to help the school identify and respond to the educational needs of the community. 

School Councils provide advice on both the developing and implementing of policies for many important matters, including:
  • criteria for selecting principals and vice principals
  • the local Code of Conduct
  • appropriate dress codes for students.
Welcome to School Council Guide 
The Welcome to School Council Guide. The guide will help you perform your duties effectively and empower parents to make a difference for their own children as well as for the other students in the school. 
Additional Resources and Tip Sheets
