Welcome to School Council’s: An Open Invitation

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/

We welcome all parents/guardians who are willing to volunteer their time to participate on our School Council for the 2023-2024 school year. Typically, School Councils meet in person on a regular basis to discuss school-wide interests and to make recommendations to the principal, due to Public Health considerations, meetings will be held virtually for the 2023-2024 school year.

What is the School Council?

School Council is an important part of Shannen Koostachin Elementary. It provides a forum through which members can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance. Our council is made up of elected parents, a Teacher Representative, and Principal Tricia Nelson.

Working in an advisory capacity, we provide input and make recommendations to the school Principal on a wide range of topics. Examples of areas that may require consultation with the School Council include provincial test results, student code of conduct and parental involvement, and student safety.

How to Get Involved

Please check our website (under “News”) to find the Self-Nomination Form.  We are Excited to get our School Council up and running for an amazing year ahead!
