What Does The SCC Do?
Please contact the LPSD school in your area to inquire about joining the SCC
SCCs are school-level advisory bodies that are required in every school. The Education Act, 1995 and The Education Regulations, 1986 provide a common, yet flexible, framework for all SCCs. Under the authority of boards of education, SCCs have specific powers and duties. SCCs consist of elected members and appointed members.
Every school in Saskatchewan has a School Community Council (SCC). SCCs are made up of elected and appointed parents or guardians and community members. They work to advance the educational objectives of their school. In 2006, SCCs replaced all legislated district (local)
boards of trustees and local school advisory committees throughout Saskatchewan.
SCCs work with parents and community to develop shared responsibility for the learning success and well-being of all children and youth. They encourage and facilitate the involvement of youth, parents and the community in school planning and improvement processes.
Any parent or guardian of a student who attends the school or any community member who is an elector (as defined in The Local Government Election Act) and lives within the attendance area for that school is eligible to run for an elected position on the SCC.
For information about the SCCs in your school or school division, contact your school principal or school division office, or visit your school division website and follow the links to SCCs.
