School Community Councils are advisory bodies charged with the responsibility of supporting student achievement, opportunities and well-being at the school and community level. SCC activities are aligned with the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP), the Good Spirit School Division Strategic Plan and school Learning Improvement Plans.
School Community Councils receive their authority through The Education Act, The Education Regulations and Board policy. These foundational documents empower parents and communities with meaningful ways to become engaged in matters related to public education.
School Community Councils are an integral, purposeful and valued component of School Division governance. In their advisory capacity, they accept a shared responsibility for the learning success and well-being of all children and youth, while encouraging and facilitating parent and community engagement.
