St. Marcellinus School Council
The St. Marcellinus School Council is committed to promoting and supporting a school environment which fosters the growth and development of the mind, the body and the Spirit of all our children. We promote and encourage the utilization of strong Catholic teachings and the principles of Faith, Hope and Charity, while facilitating communication between home, school, church and our larger community.
The purpose of the Catholic School Council is to improve pupil achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents. It is the policy of the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board that our Catholic School Councils will promote the vision, values, sacramental life and Catholic practices of the Board and be faithful to its mission.
SCHOOL COUNCIL ELECTIONS
As we begin the 2019-2020 school year, the Ministry of Education regulations call on us to coordinate the election of parent members for our school council within the first 30 days of the school year. Each parent seeking elections shall be nominated or self-nominated in writing, shall have a child registered at the school, shall be an English Separate School Elector or spouse of an English Separate School Elector, and shall declare if he or she is employed by the school board. The nomination documentation must be signed by an appointed official in the administration office. All nominations will be closed one week prior to the election. Nominations require the consent of the nominated member.
Our first School Council Meeting will be held on Monday, September 30, 2019 at 7:00 pm in the Cafeteria. If you are interested in participating in our school council as an elected member, please complete and submit to our front office a nomination form. Nomination forms can be picked up from the main office. All written nominations must be submitted to the office no later than Monday, September 23rd at 3:30 pm.
The Election Committee shall request a written profile from all candidates along with the “Nomination Form For Election Of Parent Members”. All Catholic School Council members must have a Criminal Reference Check or Annual Criminal Offence Declaration form.
Hope to see you at our first School Council Meeting on Monday, September 30th -- All are welcome!
