This quick reference guide has been developed to help school council members fulfill their mandate in the most effective and efficient manner. This guide provides a succinct overview of the HDSB School Council Handbook, revised August 2003 and is not meant to replace the Handbook but rather to be a synopsis of topics in the Handbook.
This Guide offers a brief outline of the regulations governing school councils and what they mean for councils, principals and the school board. It explains the roles and responsibilities of each partner and outlines the areas in which the school board and principals are required to consult with school councils.
For more detail in each of these areas, please consult the School Council Resources listed in the School Council Handbook Supplement menu at the left.
