School Council


Education is a partnership involving parents, students, teachers, principals, community and school boards.

School councils provide advice on school matters and help to strengthen the important relationship between schools, parents/guardians and their communities.

All members of the school community are welcome to attend council meetings. Parents/guardians and community members are key to a successful school council. Getting involved gives you the opportunity to be part of a team working to ensure a high quality of education. School councils are supported in their work through various resources available online or through the school administrator. 

This is just one way families can get involved to support students and schools. Learn about other things you can do to engage with your child’s learning at home and at school.

According to the Ontario Ministry of Education, the purpose of School Councils is “to enhance student learning through the co-operative efforts of parent, students, staff members and others in the community.”  School Councils are advisory bodies that can make recommendations to the Principal and/or the Board on any matter, with the exception of confidential and personnel matters.
The Board believes that School Councils play an important role in:
  • building school, family and community partnerships
  • providing input into relevant school and Board decisions
  • encouraging the meaningful involvement of all members of the school community in support of student learning
This is achieved through:
  1. on-going dialogue with the Principal
  2. participation in the development and support of the School Improvement Work Plan
  3. volunteering in various capacities
  4. promoting parent education and learning at home
  5. coordinating community resources
At Woodland, we are very fortunate to have an active and involved School Council.  We welcome all parents/guardians to become involved and to attend our meetings.
