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​.​​​​

School Advisory Council

If a formal school council is not established at a school, the principal may establish a school advisory committee for that school year.  The Niitsitapi Learning Centre’s school advisory committee includes members of the urban Indigenous community of Calgary.

We encourage parents to attend our monthly School Advisory Council (last Thursday of each month) and enjoy tea and bannock with the Principal and members of our staff. 

The School Advisory Council works in a collaborative manner with the school administration and staff to significantly enhance the learning opportunities we provide for students. It also provides an opportunity for parents to learn more about the school, support initiatives and provide input. Our school partners will also attend these meetings.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

School council meetings will start at a new time in the 2018/19 school year, 12:00 PM - 1: 15PM, the school advisory dates for 2018/19 are:

  • Thursday September 27
