School Council

School Council

The Role of the School Council:

Consult with the principal to ensure students have opportunities to meet Ministry standards, fiscal management is sound and the community’s expectations are taken into consideration during school-based planning.

  • Advise the principal and the school board.
  • Consult with other school councils and provincial organizations.
  • Communicate information to the school community.
  • Focus on the best interests of all students.

What School Councils are Not:

It is important to be mindful, that as with all partners in education, there are limits to the work that can be done by a school council.

Roles that are not to be taken on by a school council include:

  • School governance
  • Employment issues
  • School management
  • Listening to complaints
  • It is not the primary role of school councils to fundraise or lobby.


The membership of the School Council shall consist of the following:

  • Parents of students enrolled in Iron Ridge Campus
  • Principal of the school
  • Teachers of the school
  • Member of the community
