The York Region District School Board through its mission statement holds the beliefs that successful education requires co-operative partnerships among the school, the home and the community, and that effective relationships between the education system and the communities are promoted through consultation, collaboration and strong communication programs.
The Board believes that relationships between its schools and their communities can be strengthened through the establishment of local school councils which serve as a means of improving student learning and school effectiveness. School councils exist to provide parents, staff, students and community representatives with a more responsible and active role in education programs and services within their local community.
As well, school councils can also promote positive attitudes toward both the education of students in the school and public education in the community, effective two-way communication between home and school, and increased parental participation in the education of their children.
The Executive Committee is elected in September.
