Parkview has been privileged to have a very involved parent community who has a positive working relationship with school staff. Volunteerism is an important part of Parkview's school culture, as parents willingly give of their time to assist and initiate a variety of activities to support all our students.
Parkview P.S.'s school council activities involve supporting student achievement through the school plan for continuous improvement. School council meets on a monthly basis. Parents and community members are always welcome to attend the monthly meetings, to join one of the committees, or to send comments and suggestions at anytime.
Successful education requires collaborative partnerships among the school, the home and the community, and that effective relationships between the education system and the communities are promoted through consultation, collaboration and strong communication programs.
Relationships between its schools and their communities can be strengthened through the establishment of local school councils which serve as a means of improving student learning and school effectiveness.
It is the policy of the Board that each school in its jurisdiction establish and maintain a School Council. School Councils are supported in their work through the annual School Council Forums, a handbook, and various resources available online or through the school administrator.
Parents and community members are key to a successful school council, and is just one way parents and community can get involved and support students and schools.
