School councils, conseils d'école in French, were established in 1995 to increase parent and community involvement in the education of children in Alberta. Public schools, including charter schools, are required to attempt to establish school councils.
Each school council must include the following members:
- school principal
- parents of students enrolled in the school
- student(s) (high schools only)
Parents must form the majority of members. In a francophone school, all school council meetings are held in French. For more information, ask your school principal or click here.
