​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​.​

Inner reflection on this shortest day of the year. Thank you Elder Saa’kokoto for your teaching. “Get us to the point where we will see our footprints in the snow.” ~Elder Saa’kokoto @Indigenous_cbe #WinterSolstice https://t.co/HnGe3Cjo95

RT @SOSAlberta: Make no mistake - Kenney is very deliberate with his messaging. @jkenney believes high quality education should be an *option for parents*. We believe high quality public education is the RIGHT OF ALL CHILDREN. Who will defend that right with us? Join Us. #ABEd #ABleg #ABPoli https://t.co/FAomwL1gHn

RT @joececiyyc: RT if you've had a shocking increase in your utility bills lately. And remember: if the UCP hadn't removed the price cap on the Regulated Rate Option for electricity (implemented by the NDP govt), prices per KWh would be less than half of what consumers are seeing today. #ableg
