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 Education 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​.​

Our Council

The School Council of Acadia School is committed to working with the school community to ensure that quality learning opportunities are provided for all of our students. We support the many diverse and innovative programs offered in our school and work closely with our administration to enhance the educational opportunities available in our school. All parents and legal guardians of children enrolled in our school are members of our School Council. Executive positions are filled at our fall meeting, usually held in September of each year. 

Parents are encouraged to attend the regular meetings of the School Council and we remind all parents that your input and feedback are very important in ensuring the success of our school! Many important topics are discussed at School Council meetings and they are a good source of information as well as a great opportunity to speak up and have your opinion heard. Every voice is important and we encourage each one of you to attend meetings and share your opinions with us.
