Extraordinary Lives Start With a Great Catholic Education

School Councils




 Catalog-Item Reuse ‭[1]‬


​​School councils play a vital role in the education system in Ontario. They provide a forum through which parents and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance.

In 2000-2001, the Ontario government took significant steps to ensure that parents, through their school councils, would have greater influence in their children’s education. Regulations were created that confirm the advisory role of school councils and clearly state that their purpose is to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.

School councils are now able to make recommendations to their principals and school boards on any matter. Principals and school boards, in turn, must consult with school councils on a variety of matters that affect student learning. They must also consider recommendations made by school councils and report back to the councils on how they plan to act.

For more information about school councils, download the Get Involved in Your Catholic School Council brochure or visit Central Committee for Catholic School Councils (CCCSC).
