School councils are an excellent way for you to get involved in your child’s education. Every TDSB school has an elected school council. Your school council is an important forum for involving all members of the school community in matters that affect the education of students and successful outcomes for every child!
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 and the Board 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.
As the local Trustee, I wholeheartedly endorse and support the work being done by School Councils throughout Willowdale / Ward 12. Some great things are achieved everyday. And your ability to reach out and connect with other parents, new Canadians, and the broader community strengthens Public Education for everyone, especially our kids.
I encourage more parents to GET INVOLVED, become school leaders and advocate for our children's education.
