​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. 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

We welcome parent participation on both the School Council and the 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 or would like to learn more about how we support our students, please join the meeting.

Meeting Dates/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 March 21, 2023 at 7 PM. 

Meeting information:
