School Planning Councils

The purpose of School Planning Councils is to formally acknowledge the importance of parental involvement in improving student achievement. Many schools and districts have already developed thoughtful approaches to involving parents in planning - both at the school and the district level. School Planning Councils are intended to formalize the role of parents in all schools in British Columbia.

The School Planning Councils are advisory bodies. Their major responsibility is to develop, monitor and review school plans in respect for student achievement in consultation with the school community. Each school year School Planning Councils must prepare and submit to the School Board a school plan in respect to improving student achievement and other matters contained in the Board's accountability contract relating to that school.
