School Councils

Volunteer for your school council and make a meaningful difference in your school community!

School councils are collective associations of parents/guardians, teachers, principals, staff, students and community members. They foster cooperation and enhance student learning by promoting the well-being and effectiveness of the entire school community.

School councils provide valuable advisory assistance to the school principal and the division Board of Trustees. We highly encourage parents and guardians to participate in their school council meetings.

To find the next meeting date, please contact your child’s school.

Alberta School Council Engagement (ASCE) Grant

For the 2022-2023 school year, Alberta’s government is providing more than $1 million directly to school councils through the Alberta School Council Engagement (ASCE) Grant to enhance collaboration between parents and schools on education priorities. This grant gives each school council in the province $500 this year under a new direct funding approach. The purpose of this funding is to support school councils fulfilling their legislated responsibilities in the education system and enhancing parent involvement and engagement.
