Description

TVDSB school council members, principals, teachers, trustees and staff will have the opportunity to learn how to improve school councils.

Topics covered will include the following:

  • School Council Finance – Information on the new School Generated Funds Policy, Parent Reaching Out grants and Parent Involvement Funds, and the role of a council treasurer.
  • Meetings and Bylaws – Information on how to draft an effective agenda, collaborate with your principal, run a meeting, and draft effective bylaws.
  • Volunteer Engagement and Overcoming Barriers – Information on how to recruit new members to your council and overcome cultural, language and other barriers to participation.

The event will include light refreshments and several opportunities for networking. Child care is available at no charge. (The deadline for child care registration is October 27.) A school council from each of the board's four regions will win $500 to be used for Parent Involvement Funding during the 2017/18 school year.
