School Council Tool Kit

Limestone Learning Foundation

Welcome to the Limestone District School Board School Council Tool Kit. Thank you for volunteering, and your willingness to contribute your time to your School Council.

The resources available in the Tool Kit, have been developed to:

  • encourage parent engagement by making volunteering easier;
  • help volunteers understand parent council roles and responsibilities;
  • suggest council activities based on the school calendar year;
  • share ideas;
  • augment communication;
  • help you have a successful year/term; and
  • support a smooth transition to new leadership.

All documents are designed with a flexible framework to:

  • allow each parent council to make them applicable to their established roles;
  • modified each document to suit your school's needs; and
  • customize each document to include your school logos and names.

The use of these resource materials provided and establishing priorities for your School Council should be based on the current level of council activity, at your school. Pick and choose from the resources, to suit your school and adjust them as necessary to your council's needs. Slowly begin to build in new roles, activities and events.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
