Frankland School Council – What do we do and why should you get involved?


What does the school council do and why should you get involved?

Joining the school council is a great way to get involved in our school community.

The school council:

  • provides a regular forum for collaboration between parents and staff in order to support student learning;
  • advises the principal on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after-school activities, and criteria for the selection of new principals;
  • represents the diverse views of the school community on issues as they arise;
  • informs the school community about decisions taken; and
  • fundraises for priorities identified by the parents and staff.

Our school council has 15 elected positions.  Some are designated (Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, Fundraising Chair, Greening Committee Chair, Liaison/Advocacy Chair) while others are undesignated, or “at-large”.  Parent council members in undesignated positions are encouraged to take responsibility for a committee or event over the course of the year (such as Volunteer Coordinator, Community Engagement, Fun Fair, Silent Auction, etc.).

Parents who do not hold voting positions are welcome to attend meetings and/or serve on school council committees.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the school council, please contact Evita Strobele at or Lindsay Clarke-Andrews at .
