​One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

Our Parent Society is known as Parent Association.

We welcome parent participation on both the School Council and the Parent Association. There are four to five meetings this year as well as the Annual General Meeting. All dates will be posted at least two weeks before the next event. Meeting times start 7:00 PM on the scheduled date and will be held via Microsoft Team online until in person group meetings are reinstated.

Please support your school community through participation on the School Council / Parent Association. A small investment of time makes a dramatic impact on the programming we are able to offer students. 

If you are interested in joining the School Council please come to a meeting. 

Meeting Schedule

The School Council meets from 7:00 – 8:00 PM with the Parent Association meeting following the School Councils adjournment. 

See our Calendar page for dates and times.


Parent Association & School Council next meeting is scheduled for January 24, 2023 at 7:00 PM

Meeting invite is posted below and will also be sent out to the Alternative High School Community through School Messenger

This meeting will be in person at Alternative High School.   If parents would like to attend virtually, they can use this link.
