​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

The William Reid School Council is made up of parents of students enrolled in William Reid School, school administration and teachers. WRSC advises the principal and CBE on school related matters and participates in system wide communication activities through the key Communicators. Its mission is to foster a positive and productive school community that enhances learning.

Being part of WRSC is as easy as attending a meeting. We also need willing participants to be part of the executive.

Our William Reid School Council meetings and our William Reid School Fundraising Society meetings are always held on the same night, one right after the other.
