Community Council

The School Community Council

Do you know what the school community council does and who makes up this council? For those who don’t know the school community council is a body made-up of parents, school administration and staff. It is the responsibility of this council to allocate the school land trust money to the goal areas of the school, to work with the district and the city to mark safe walking paths, and be involved in our children’s education. This council is a way of getting our parental voices heard.

Parent engagement is the key to the success of our children and their school. Please come and take part in our meetings, they are open to the public and we would be happy to have your input. If you can’t make a meeting please email one of the council members and we will bring your comment or concern to the group. If you would like to be a part of the council you can apply at the beginning of every school year.

For more information please contact a member of the School Community Council or visit the school land trusts website:
