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​.​

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.
