Helen Detwiler School Council Nominations and Elections – 2022/23
Every school in Ontario is required to have a School Council to work collaboratively with the principal/vice-principal to improve student achievement and to enhance accountability of the school with parents. Information about School Councils can be found here:
We welcome all parents/guardians/caregivers who are willing to volunteer their time to participate on our School Council for the 2022-2023 school year.
School Councils must hold annual elections to identify voting members and various positions such as School Council Chair. Elected members vote on School Council matters and represent the group’s ideas and advisory suggestions for the Principal. Please note that you do not have to be an elected member of School Council to attend meetings. All meetings are open to all parents/guardians who wish to attend.
To declare your interest to become an elected member of School Council, please click on and complete the following online nomination form. You may also nominate another parent/guardian of a student at our school to become an elected School Council member. All nomination forms must be submitted by Monday September 26th, 4:00 pm in order to be elected to Council.
Our school council elections/meeting will take place in-person on Thursday September 29th, 2002 at 6:00 p.m. in our school learning commons.
We look forward to seeing you there!
