Humbercrest Public School Parent Council

“The purpose of the School Advisory Council (i.e. Parent Council) is through the active participation of parents, to improve pupil achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.”  (Reg.612/2.1)  As an advisory body, it may make recommendations to the principal of the school or the Board.  Council members are elected for a term that lasts from the first meeting of one school year to the first meeting of the next school year.  The Council consists of parents, principal or vice-principal, a teacher, a non-teaching employee of the school, and community representatives appointed by the elected council.  Parents and community members are welcome to attend our meetings and childcare is provided if required.

The Parent Council may advise on:

    1. programs and strategies to improve school performance
    1. the welfare, care and protection of our children
    1. communications to parents and the community
  1. code of student conduct

“I find it valuable to attend School Council because it is a wonderful way to meet other parents, and it keeps me connected with what is going on at Humbercrest. Parent committees update the Council on their progress and needs; the administration explains recent developments and issues at the school level; parents can also suggest new initiatives and make suggestions for future presentations.” ~ Leigh Thornton, Humbercrest parent
