School councils have been created to enhance students’ learning through the cooperative efforts of parents, students, staff members and others in the community. Your school council is an advisory body of volunteers who work together to provide ideas and opinions to help the principal and sometimes the school district, make the school a better place for learning.
Accepting the role of school council member carries with it certain responsibilities. Each school council will define the roles and responsibilities of its members in its Constitution and By-Laws. The following roles and responsibilities for specific positions are suggestions only. A school council’s operating by-laws may outline other specific duties for the chair/co-chairs as well as for other officers of the council, such as a secretary or treasurer. For details please see Section D of Halton School Council Handbook.
