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​.​​​​

All parents and guardians are invited to participate in School Council and the Dr E.P. Scarlett Parents and Alumni Association (“Friends of Scarlett”) meetings throughout the school year. School Council meetings are an opportunity for parents to provide input into school decision making and to hear about the schools’ plans and activities, as well as those of the CBE. Meetings often open with a “focus topic” or parent education session, with topics selected based on parent preferences. For 2018‑2019, a series of topics related to the CBE’s Three Year Education Plan has been drafted. Topics will be finalized with input from attendees at the September meeting.

If you would like to get involved in any capacity (we are in particular need of a parent to serve as Treasurer), or if you have suggestions for focus topics or matters that you think should be discussed at School Council, you can contact  epshscouncil@gmail.com.
