Every school has a school council - a group focused on helping all students succeed. School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students, and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.


Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board's Parent Involvement Committee. Click here to learn more about school councils in SCDSB, and the Parent Involvement Committee.

Why should I join school council?

Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your teen's educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their teen's education, the level of student achievement increases.


What does school council do?

School council members are elected to represent the school community. School council meetings are not the place to address individual concerns. School councils discuss broader topics, such as the School Action Plan, new programs or initiatives, student well-being, student achievement, and school-wide fundraising activities. The SCDSB's Parent Involvement Committee runs an annual orientation event for school council members. This is a chance to get to know your Parent Involvement Committee representative, meet other school council members, gather important information, and ask questions. There are also grants available for school councils, such as Ontario's Parents Reaching Out (PRO) grants that encourage parent/guardian engagement at the local, regional and provincial levels. School councils can apply for PRO grants for school projects, events, and parent/guardian organizations. Parent Involvement Committees (PICs), school boards, non-profit organizations and post-secondary institutions can apply for PRO grants for regional/provincial projects.


How do I get involved?

School council meetings are open to the public, so anyone can attend meetings without being an elected member of school council. School council elections take place each fall. For more information about joining school council, speak to our principal or a current school council member. Attending meetings is a great way to learn about the work of school council before running for election.
