For more information on School Community Councils please see below.
SCCs are school-level advisory bodies that are required in every school. The Education Act, 1995 and The Education Regulations,1986 provide a common, yet flexible, framework for all SCCs. Under the authority of boards of education, SCCs have specific powers and duties. SCCs consist of elected members and appointed members.
SCCs work with parents and community to develop shared responsibility for the learning success and well-being of all children and youth. They encourage and facilitate the involvement of youth, parents and the community in school planning and improvement processes.
For information about the SCCs in your school or school division, contact your school principal or school division office, or visit your school division website and follow the links to SCCs.
