General Information: 

School council is a collective association of parents, staff and community members  whose purpose is to advise the principal and the board respecting matters relating to the school.  It is a means for the entire school community to work together to support and enhance student learning. 

All parents registered at ÉCVS are welcome to attend the School Council meetings.  Decisions at meetings will follow a “Town Hall” style format with each parent having an equal vote. Meetings will take place online for the foreseeable future.  

Parents can fully engage with comments and questions or just sit back with the camera off to listen and observe. There is no pressure to sign up for volunteer commitments. This is a great opportunity to hear about what is happening in the school and a chance to provide input to the principal and division. 

Typically, School Council meetings are about an hour long. There will be reports from the principal, teachers rep and school trustee talking about activities in the school, highlights of the school budget, education plans, and school division news.  The School Council also helps out with special projects like family dances, school events and clubs.

A school council cannot be incorporated under the Societies Act or Part 9 of the Companies Act.  Although a school council can fundraise, it cannot undertake fundraising endeavours that require a gaming license from the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, such as bingos, casinos or raffles.
