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

As outlined in the CBE School Council Handbook, some of the many important functions of a School Council include:

  • Helping to ensure students have the opportunity to meet the standards of education established by Alberta Education;
  • Assisting in ensuring that the fiscal management of the school meets requirements;
  • Advising the principal and the Board of Trustees on school matters; and
  • Communicating information to the school community.

The Escuela Glenmeadows School Council will:

  • Build community through celebrating teaching staff and emphasizing the Spanish speaking culture of the school.
  • Collaborate with school and administration goals and initiatives by creating input opportunities for parents at regular meeting to meet with administration on school development and set measurable goals.
  • Enhance student achievement by offering program enhancements and experiences.
