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​.​​​​

Meeting Dates/Schedule

School Council typically meets the fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 PM. Parent and community member input to school decisions is greatly appreciated. See our Calendar page for dates and times.  Minutes of the meetings can be provided upon request.
