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.
Parent council is an
important part of Willow Landing Elementary School. Volunteer parents work hard
to fundraise, organize events and support the students to benefit their education.
If you have any questions, or are interested in volunteering with parent
council, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
