​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

The McKenzie Highlands School Council is a strong and active parent body that is integral to our school’s operation and success. School Council works collaboratively with the school administration and staff to significantly enhance learning opportunities for students. It is often through School Council that parents are first asked for feedback about new things that are being considered. It also provides an opportunity for parents to learn more about the school, support initiatives and to provide input. If you have any questions please contact chair@mhsparents.com.

Agendas for the meeting can be found on the school website or the MHSPA Facebook page.     


 Thanks,
