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

Welcome!
What is the School Council and what do we do?

School councils are structured groups of parents, principals, teachers, secondary students and community representatives who work together to effectively support and enhance student learning.

  • support every student's learning experience; 
  • keep parents connected with school activities;
  • act as a sounding board for administration;
  • arrange Guest Speakers for parents;
  • represent WAHS at the CBE’s Council of School Councils (CoSC);
  • represent WAHS at the Alberta School Councils Association (ASCA)

The Friends of OrAnge Association (FOAA) is a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for William Aberhart High School.  While meetings are held following school council on the last Monday of the month, FOAA is a separate legal entity from William Aberhart School Council.  School Council is scheduled from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and FOAA from 8:10 p.m. to 8:40 p.m. so folks may choose to attend one or both meetings.
