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 generally meets on the second Monday of every month in the school teacher’s lounge at 6:30 PM (followed by the Fundraising Society meeting). Reminders are posted on our Royal Oak School Council Facebook page. If you have opted in to receive emails from our School Council you will also receive the monthly Agenda as well as meeting dates, times and minutes.

The meetings operate in a manner that is non-judgmental. We strive for open discussion and collaboration. Council needs parents with ideas, talent, and motivation to keep providing an excellent learning environment for our children at the school.

What is the Royal Oak School Council?

We are a liaison group between parents / guardians, teachers, administration, community and the School Board. We support student learning and the well-being of the entire school community by encouraging communication, involvement and cooperation; with the goal of enhancing individual student learning and school life. Established under the Alberta School Act, we operate as an advisory body. The School Council advises on program priorities and budget allocations. It evaluates the success of education goals and special projects. As a parent and/or guardian with a child in the school, you are considered a member of School Council.
