​Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

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​.​

Information about the impact of COVID-19 on School Councils is available on the CBE website​.​​



School Council

School Advisory

If a formal school council is not established at a school, the principal may establish a school advisory committee for that school year.  The Niitsitapi Learning Centre’s school advisory committee includes members of the urban Indigenous community of Calgary.

We encourage parents to attend our monthly School Advisory (last Thursday of each month at 1:00-2:00 pm) and enjoy tea and bannock with the Principal and members of our staff. 

The School Advisory works in a collaborative manner with the school administration and staff to significantly enhance the learning opportunities we provide for students. It also provides an opportunity for parents to learn more about the school, support initiatives and provide input. Our school partners will also attend these meetings.

For further information on how to create a School Council, please find the link below.
