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

Branton School Council

The Branton School Council exists for parents, teachers, support staff, students, and community members to work together to provide leadership for the school community and to contribute to the effectiveness of the school by:

  • Increasing meaningful communication among all groups that have a significant stake in the success of the school.
  • Creating greater awareness and enabling involvement and support for the school within the stakeholder community and beyond.
  • Participating in the making of relevant school decisions, policies, and plans.

Throughout the year, Council meets on the third Monday of each month (unless specified otherwise) at 7 pm in the library. A summary of Council business and the agenda for the next meeting are published here and minutes are e­mailed to those who attend.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

  • Meetings are from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.  See our Calendar page for dates
