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

Dr. Oakley School is renowned for its extensive parental interest and educational involvement. Our School Council provides the opportunity for all parents to take an active, meaningful role in the education of our children and promotes the spirit of community among stakeholders (students, parents, teachers, staff, and members of the community at large). 

Meeting Schedule

Meetings are held on-line once per month at 6:30 PM. No meetings in December and June.  All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
