Norwood Park’s First School Council Meeting & Nomination Forms
Good afternoon Norwood Park Families,
Every school in Ontario is required to have a School Council to work collaboratively with the principal to improve student achievement and to enhance accountability of the school with parents. Information about School Councils can be found here: http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/general/elemsec/council/council02.pdf
We welcome all parents/guardians who are willing to volunteer their time to participate in our School Council for the 2020-2021 school year. Typically, School Councils meet in person on a regular basis to discuss school-wide interests and to make recommendations to the principal, however, this year, due to Public Health considerations, meetings will be held virtually.
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 on School Council, please complete the nomination form below. 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 received by Wednesday, Oct. 14th, 2020. Please note that you must attend the meeting on Thursday October 15, 2020 in order to be elected to Council.
Our first meeting of this school year will be held virtually at 6:15pm on Thursday October 15, 2020 via MS Teams.
