Why it's Important

It is important that your School Council establishes priorities and set goals, and sticks to them. Determining priorities will allow members to focus on areas of need within your school. Setting goals will give members a clear sense of what to do to address those needs. A comprehensive guide to goals, priorities, roles, and responsibilities as well as effective practices for School Councils can be found in the Ontario Ministry of Education's handbook:  School Councils: A Guide for Members.
