School Council

All schools in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board should have an advisory school council to help increase communication between schools and their communities and to serve the needs of students. A school council liaises through the school principal and is an important link between parents and the school community. Membership on the school council is open to all parents/guardians of students enrolled in the school - community representatives, intermediate and secondary students, the school principal (non-voting), teachers, and administrative and support staff.

We thank all school councils for their leadership and the important work they do in their community to help create a culture of innovation, caring and social responsibility across the OCDSB.
