School Council members are important partners in education who every day make a difference in the lives of our students and school communities. At Peel District School Board schools, we value the role and contribution of our school council members and their commitment to help boost parent involvement and student excellence.
In our efforts to strengthen this partnership that we share, the Peel board has developed a collection of resources to guide and assist members throughout the year. Our school council resources section below provides materials, templates and links to Peel board and Ministry documents that council members and school staff will find helpful.
