The School Community Council is the community's connection to our school. It is made up of parents, school administration, teachers and even representatives from the students.
Meetings are usually held on the Second Tuesday of each month, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Resource Centre.
The SCC is a publicly elected body that is responsible to the school community and to the Board. An Scc has no authority over any matter that would normally be the responsibilty of the school or the school board administration. The principal and the teacher are the SCC's direct links back to the school, staff and student community. The principal is responsible for the administration of the school and has authority, under some direction of RPS over the running of the school, its activities and projects.
An SCC’s duties are detailed in The Education Act. In summary these duties are:
Encourage and promote parent and community participation in school planning including:
Working with school staff to develop and recommend to the Board a Learning Improvement Plan that complements the Continuous Improvement Plan
Complete any work defined by the approved Learning Improvement Plan
