The purpose of an SCC (School Community Council) is, through active participation of parents, to improve pupil achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents. This purpose is achieved through making recommendations to the principal of the school. An SCC is comprised of parents, a member of the school's teaching staff, a member of the school's non-teaching staff , the principal and an appointed community member. The SCC must meet a minimum of four times a year. Usually meetings are scheduled monthly. All parents are welcome to attend SCC meetings; however, only elected members of the council may vote. In order to establish the SCC, interested parents are invited to complete a nomination form. The forms will be sent home the first day of school and will be available at the Meet the Teacher night. Depending on the number of interested parents, an election may be necessary to decide which parents may be on the council. If an election is necessary, it will be held at the first SCC meeting in September. Once the Council has been established an executive will also be elected at the first SCC meeting. The executive is comprised of a chairperson ( or co-chairs), vice-chair, secretary and treasurer as well as any other officer established by the council through the by-laws.
