About School Council
School Council provides an opportunity for the school staff, parents and community members to connect and understand each other on matters of education and the school environment that impact the student body as a whole.
For our School Council at Belvedere Parkway it’s one of the ways our Principal, Assistant Principal and teachers can consult parents thoughtful insights, perspectives, and feedback, an important conversation that’s considered when planning for the school experiences and learning for their students. It is also a place for our parents to gain more understanding of the dedicated and inspiring efforts, as well as complex decisions made in our school for our children.
Opportunities exist here to provide valuable input and gain understanding on our school's policies, education plan, annual results report and budget, as well as Calgary Board of Education and Province wide system decisions such as assessment , grading, report cards, or program of studies. Along with these type of focus areas we also look at other aspects of what’s happening at the school; we all gain understanding about the broader experiences for our students in the school and classrooms, we build ideas and connections up for fundraising, curriculum, and school culture, we get to know our Principal, Assistant Principal, and teachers, and we get to know parents.
School council also help support the Parent Fundraising Committee which organizes the Casino fundraising event, and other fundraising initiatives parents in the school lead.
Our meetings mainly purposes the connection between parents, school, and education, but also welcomes the broader community outside of the school as the vast opportunity for community partnerships and support continues to grow.
Our School Council is always evolving, but is consistent in focusing on developing the best school and education experience for our children and our students.
Meetings are held in the Learning Commons (Library) at 7pm on the 3rd Tuesday of every month (except December).
