School Community Councils
School Community Councils (SCCs) are in place at every school* in Prairie South School Division. SCCs provide an opportunity for parents and community members to play a meaningful role in supporting the learning that takes place at their local school.
SCCs have both appointed and elected members. Elected positions are open to parents of students attending the school and all electors (ratepayers) in the attendance area. The majority of elected members must be parents. Schools that offer a high school program (Grades 10, 11 and 12) may have up to two student members on their SCCs, as assigned by the Student Representative Council.
SCC members are expected to become knowledgeable about the school, its resources and supports, the community – including the economic, social and health conditions – and the community environment and expectations related to student learning and wellbeing. They can then use this knowledge to determine improvement targets and identify appropriate ways to support learning and improve student outcomes at the school.

SCCs are responsible for communicating with parents and the community respecting the council’s plans, initiatives, outcomes and spending related to operations.
