School Councils have three main responsibilities

  • Finance – approving the annual budget and ensuring proper records are kept for the school’s financial operation.
  • Strategic Planning – participating in the development and monitoring of the school strategic plan.
  • Policy Development and Review – developing, monitoring, reviewing and updating policies that reflect a school’s values and support the school’s broad direction outlined in its strategic plan.

 

Other key functions of school councils include

  • Raising funds for school-related purposes
  • Maintaining school grounds and facilities
  • Entering into contracts
  • Reporting annually to the school community and the Department
  • Representing and taking the views of the community into account
  • Regulating and facilitating after-hours use of school premises and grounds
  • Creating interest in the school within the community

 

What school council does not do

  • Does not manage the day to day running of the school
  • Does not discuss individual issues relating to teachers, staff of parents
  • Not appointed to represent specific interests groups or permit special interests to dominate agenda of the council
  • Not allowed to purchase buildings, land or motor vehicles, and it cannot enter hire purchase agreements or obtain credit or loans, unless given permission by the minister
