​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

As a parent, you are automatically a member of School Council. All parents are welcomed and encouraged to participate. This dedicated group of parents makes a significant difference in learning opportunities for all our students that would otherwise not happen. We hope that parents would consider attending at least one meeting during the year. Meetings are held monthly. Council meets at the school at 7 PM. Child care is provided.
