School Council Basics will look at everything you need to know to set up and to run a school council - Regulation 612, funding, elections, budgeting. 

School Council ByLaws takes a close look at how to write bylaws for your community - what needs to be in it, what you can add, what you must consider. 

School Council Effectiveness examines how to run an effective council - committees, volunteers, communication and engaging families. It will help you begin to the engage families in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them. 

The target audience is any member of a school council and/or parent involved in school council work. This could include Principals, teachers, support staff and/or committee chairs/members.
