School Community Councils are advisory bodies charged with the responsibility of enhancing supports for learning at the school. The support for learning focus is aligned with the Board and the Ministry of Education. School Community Councils receive their authority through provincial legislation and Board policy. This empowers parents and communities with meaningful ways to become engaged in matters related to public education. In their advisory capacity, the SCC accept a shared responsibility for learning success and well-being of all children and youth, while encouraging and facilitating parent, parish, and community engagement.
The SCC is a dedicated group of parents, school staff, administration, and community that meet monthly during the school year to share ideas and information about St. Michael School. Individual committees may meet on their own to ensure they are meeting any goals that have been set out at the beginning of the school year. The SCC discusses and collaboratively makes decisions that may affect fundraising, safety, student activities, student achievement, and school improvement.
