All parents with children attending school are members of their local school council and are encouraged to participate in council activities. Councils usually meet on a month basis. School Councils are established in all schools and serve as a vehicle for parents, school administrators, teachers and support staff to meet and work together toward common goals. School Council Chairs also meet one another, division administrators and representative(s) of the Board of Trustees at the Division Parent Association meetings held once per month typically held at the Regional Board Office
