Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

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 Council

Weekly News April 9, 2021


Want to hear what the Grade 5/6's have been up to?  At our next school council meeting Tuesday April 13th, Ms. Jawanda and Mr. MacDonald will give us an update. Our Principal, Ms. Vancise will share information on budget and school fees. Results of our survey (see below!) will be discussed.  Please find the Agenda on the school website.   

Care about the Provincial renewal of the curriculum? Let your voice be heard! There are numerous ways that we as parents can impact the curriculum:   

1) The Draft K-6 curriculum and provincial feedback survey will remain open until Spring 2022.  Feedback will help refine the curriculum before it is implemented in classrooms in September 2022.   

2) The Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA) will hold their annual conference in April to discuss and vote on 11 Advocacy Resolutions ranging from Renewal of Alberta's curriculum to how school funding should be allocated.  Resolutions passed into policy will form ASCA's perspective when dealing with the Alberta government and organizations in provincial education.  The Advocacy Resolutions and a Mount View Parent Survey can be found here. The survey will be open until April 12, 2021.   

Want to come and just listen?  Great, we are happy to have you! There is never any pressure to volunteer.  Click the School Council Teams Link to join the meeting.

All Mount View parents are invited to attend the monthly meetings of our School Council. The School Council is comprised of both parents and staff representatives. Our goal is to work together to create a positive learning environment for our children. Through the council, we can strengthen communication between home and school. We discuss and plan for our school’s future. We also support special events, such as Special Lunches, which generate funds for our school programs. The Mount View School Council and Parent Association is a great way to stay informed and involved in school-related issues.
