School Council

BNC annual report 2015-2016​​

Every school has a school council—a group focused on helping all students succeed.
School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.

Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee.

Why join us on school council?
Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your teen’s educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their teen’s education, the level of student achievement increases.

Elections for School Councils occur within the first 30 days of the new school year.  The School Council Chair in consultation with the Principal sets the date. 

Any Board employee must indicate they are employees of the Board on the nomination form and this information must be shown on the ballot used for voting.  A Board employee may only be elected as a parent at a school other than the one in which they work.  They may not serve as Chair of the School Council.

The total number of elected positions on School Council is 15. Of that total, 10 are parent positions. Students, staff and administration fill the other 5 positions.

Parents are encouraged to be part of the School Council and may do so in a volunteer capacity. Please join our monthly meetings.
