Roles & Responsibilities of the School Councils

School councils are advisory bodies. A school council will provide advice to the school principal and where appropriate to the school board on any of the matters listed below that the council had identified as priorities.

The provincial policy will require that a school board's policy direct the school principal and, where relevant, senior staff and trustees of the board to seek advice from the school council as part of the process of making decisions and regard to the matters listed above.

(the above is from the Policy/Program Memorandum No. 122 of the Minstry of Education & Training - pg.3)
