School Community Councils
Over 200 parents, community members, teachers and school-based administrators are members of School Community Councils in 24 Sun West Schools.
The function of School Community Councils is, through an advisory and practical manner, to assist the administration of the school and the Board in delivering educational and extra-curricular programs; to develop shared responsibility for the learning success and well-being of all children and youth; and to encourage and facilitate parent, community and youth engagement in school planning and improvement processes. The School Community Council provides the school and division with a critical link to facilitate understanding of the community. (Sun West Board Policy 17).
The duties of School Community Councils vary as needs change in particular schools, but members of these important groups are always involved in School Learning Improvement Planning, Review of School Finance and Activities, Community Engagement, and School Community Council development.
