Background information: Parents as Partners Webcast on Monday April 7, 2008 ay 8:00 PM EST (GMT-5) with Aimee Gerdevich and Rick McAllister at edtechtalk.com/live.

School Councils are legislated in the Province of Ontario. The regulations that manage these councils have been in place since 1995. Parents, in the majority, work with a teacher representative , principal, support worker, community representatives and students (secondary schools only) in advising schools in a number of areas.

These areas are regulated and details can be found in the School Council Handbook.In 2006 Kathleen Wynne, Minister of Education introduced a Parent Involvement Policy which mandated board wide parent involvement committees. These committees are intended to reach out to parents involving them in their children’s education.

Since 1998, the Niagara Catholic District School Board has had a board wide parent involvement committee , the Regional School Council. The Niagara Catholic Regional School Council (NCRSC) membership mirrors a School Council with the addition of a school board Trustee and Superintendent of Education. This same model is now used in School Boards throughout the Province of Ontario as part of the Parent Involvement Policy.

In additional to local school board parent involvement committees, the Minister has also established a Provincial Parent Board to provide advice to the Minister.Rick McAllister is the Chair of the NCRSC and Aimee Gerdevich , Chair of the Provincial Board will be guests on the Parents as Partners Webcast.

The role of parents on school councils and in supporting their students will be the focus of the discussion. You can participate in the webcast as part the chat room as well as listening online live.
