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 is comprised of parents, administration and staff who meet on the to work together to promote the effectiveness of our school. Your input, ideas and support are an important part of Council. Whether it is by attending meetings, serving on special committees, volunteering in any number of ways, or reading and responding to the minutes published in our newsletter, all input provides parents with an effective voice at Douglasdale School.

Meeting Dates and Schedule

Meetings are held virtually on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM.
