One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

Our School Council & Parent Societies

Members of Council and the Society are parents/guardians of Colonel Irvine students just like you! In fact, all Irvine
parents/guardians are automatically members of these parent organizations . Come join us as we support our school
community, students and staff by advocating for parent perspectives, advising school administration, fundraising, and
much more! Our meetings are open to all Irvine parents/guardians and we are always eager to hear from you! Working
together, we can make the Irvine school community an amazing learning environment for all our students!

Colonel Irvine School Council (CISC)

Is comprised of parents/guardians, the principal and a teacher representative who meet regularly to discuss issues, celebrate achievements, hear about upcoming school events/activities, support the school administration, and make recommendations about to our school. Be informed and be a part of the discussion by joining us at our meetings!

Colonel Irvine Parent Society

Our Parent Society is known as the Parent Advisory Association (CIPAA) and it fundraises on behalf of Colonel Irvine
School to support school-wide programs and activities. Learn more about what they do on our Parent Society page.

Colonel Irvine Band Parent Association (CIBPA)

Not all Colonel; Irvine students participate in the Band Program so as a result, there is a separate parent/guardian volunteer group that fundraises specifically for Irvine Band Program activities. Learn more about what they do on our CIBPA page.
