School Council Elections

The OCDSB School Council Policy (P.014.SCO) and Procedure (PR.509.SCO) are based on the Ministry of Education’s regulations with respect to School Councils. The regulations for School Council elections ensure fairness, transparency, and the opportunity for new parents/guardians to participate. 

School Council elections must be held annually within the first 30 calendar days of the first day of the school year. 

Any parent/guardian of a student enrolled in your school can be elected as a parent member of the School Council. Your School Council constitution will describe the membership and officer positions on the council, as well as the roles and responsibilities that accompany these positions.

Employees of the school district can be elected to a School Council provided their employment status is disclosed. However, an employee cannot be the Chair or Co-chair of the Council. They must not work in the school for which they are seeking election to council.
