School Council

Welcome! On these pages you will find information about the School Advisory Council’s mandate, members and activities. 

What does the Council do?

School councils are an important way for parents and guardians to have an active voice in their children’s education. At CVPS, the Council is made up of 17 seats, with parent representatives elected each September. Only elected members may vote on issues; however, all parents and guardians are encouraged to attend meetings and become involved with Council activities.


The Council’s main functions include:

  • acting as a forum for school administration and parents to discuss and make decisions about relevant issues
  • providing advice on how Board policies and practices can best be applied at our school, based on our knowledge of the community and our children
  • working with school administration to develop and implement the School Plan for Continuous Improvement
  • communicating Council news and activities to parents through the Council section of the school website and regular installments in the school newsletter
  • organizing committees to support initiatives, such as staff appreciation and sustainability, outside of monthly Council meeting times
  • fundraising to support initiatives that enhance school life for our students, such as Smart Boards, books for the classrooms and library, and resources for the music and physical education programs.

When does Council meet?

Council meets once a month during the school year. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. in the school staff room. All parents, guardians and community members are welcome to attend meetings. For this year’s meeting dates, please view the CVPS Community Calendar.​
