Connection to the School Division Priorities Connection to the School Division PrioritiesSCHOOLCOMMUNITY COUNCILS For each of the priorities, there will be at least three levels of consideration: Share information with School Community Councils to enhance their knowledge and understanding; School Community Councils participate with the school to develop school based strategies to achieve school division goals; School Community Councils develop community based supports for the agreed upon school goals.
Advisory Role ADVICE ON EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS Councils will provide advice through their jointly developed Learning Improvement Plan The interest of ALL children must be taken into consideration and Special Advocacy Groups should not detract from the learning for all students Discussion of concerns about individual students or staff are not the role of the SCC, but should be referred to the principal.SCHOOLCOMMUNITY COUNCILS
