SCCs consist of two types of members – elected and appointed. At minimum, SCCs consist of:
- five to nine elected parents and community members. The majority of these members must be parents or guardians of students that attend the school;
- appointed members that include:
- the principal;
- one teacher; and
- one or two students from grades 10-12 (if applicable), and
- First Nations representatives if students live on-reserve
SCCs can recommend that the board of education appoint other members to the council to increase the representation on the council and to encourage community engagement.
