NSD host Ward Council and Council of School Councils Gathering

Posted on May 17

On April 20, 2018, Northland School Division (NSD) hosted its first-ever Ward Council and Council of School Councils Gathering at Radisson Hotel Edmonton South. The gathering is an opportunity for the Board of Trustees to engage and to hear from school community representatives. 

The Council of School Councils (COSC) is comprised of school council reps from each school and Ward Councils consist of the trustee from the ward, a member of each school council in the ward and other members such as Elders. 

Ward Councils reviewed the division's foundational statements and its community voice and engagement policy. While reviewing the foundational statements, Ward Councils were asked what needs to be in place to achieve the vision statement "Our students love to come to school in Northland". 

The COSC participated in a series of activities to discuss meaningful parental and community involvement.
