School parent councils are an excellent way for parents to get involved in their child`s education. Elora Public School has an elected parent school council. Your school council is an important forum for involving all members of the school community in matters that affect the education of students. The school parent council is made up of an elected committee of parents, staff and student representatives, appointed community members, the principal, and a general membership which includes all parent of children attending the school.
The school parent council advises the principal and the Board on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after school activities, and criteria for selection of new principals.
The Ministry of Education defines the purpose of a school council to be:
…through the active participation of parents, to improve pupil achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.
A school council may make recommendations to the principal of the school or to the Board on any matter.
(Reg. 612/ 20)
You may attend any meeting of our council. Meetings are held in the school library at 7:00 p.m. Check our calendar for up coming School Council Dates.
