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 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​.​

Information about the impact of COVID-19 on School Councils is available on the CBE website​.​​

School Council

Our School Council

The A.E. Cross School Council exists to support the work of A.E. Cross School. Parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students by participating on the school council. There is also the A.E. Cross Parents’ Association whose main function is to fundraise for the school. Fund-raising efforts have been primarily through participation in AGLC casinos. More details regarding the operation of the school council and parent associations can be found in the CBE School Council Handbook.

2021-22 Meeting Schedule

We hope meetings will be held “in-person” in the learning commons, but that will be dependent on public health guidelines and the CBE’s guidance for meetings. Stay tuned for the first meeting notice coming after the summer break.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
