School Council Minutes

Huron Park Parent Council Sept 19th 2023.docx

Every school has a school council-a group focused on helping all students succeed.

School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.

Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board's Parent Involvement Committee.

Why join us on school council?

Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your child's educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child's education, the level of student achievement increases.

Our school council is a group made up of Huron Park parents and guardians, teaching and non-teaching staff, and administrative representation. We meet approximately five times a year to discuss and have input into a variety of issues affecting our children's education. We also assist in fundraising initiatives.
