Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

School Council Elections

Principal or his/her designate are essential in supporting school councils. For information on:

Each TDSB school is required to have a school council made up of the Principal, parents, teachers, support staff, students (secondary schools), and community members.  The purpose of the council is to actively engage parents to improve student success.  It also provides a regular opportunity for its members to discuss how to make the school a better place for learning for its students.  The Principal brings important information about the school to the school council.  The school council, in turn, advises the Principal on matters related to the learning goals of the school, the school's policies and procedures, students' needs, activities and resources for students and parents, and ways of involving parents in the life of the school.  The school council is required to hold at least four general meetings each school year that are open to all parents in the school, and a membership election in September.  The elected Chair of the council is a parent of a child in the school.  For more information about your school council, please call your school or the chair of your school council.
