School Council Resources

AF110 - School Council ASCA Support - The Board of Trustees of Rocky View Schools values the Alberta School Council Association (ASCA) as an organization that provides benefit to our school councils through education, professional development, and networking with school councils across the province. In an effort to encourage school councils to attend the ASCA Conference & General Meeting held annually each spring, the Board has allocated $8,000 to support school council members in attending the event.

ASCA School Council Resource Guide - Alberta School Council Association is pleased to present its new 20 page guide, designed as a digital document containing (over 40) electronic links to relevant resources. It encompasses all elements relating to school council as indicated in the original manual, and serves as a compact, concise handbook when printed in (economical greyscale) hardcopy as well.

RVS 2019/20 School Council Resource Manual - Demonstrative of RVS' respect for School Councils, each year it produces a resource manual that lists the jurisdiction's school council policy, service directory, annual meeting schedule and more.

RVS School Council Best Practice Guide - Developed with input from several RVS School Councils, this resource guide highlights some of the practices and activities utilized to engage and support parents in ensuring student success.

School Council, Societies and Parent Groups Insurance Program - Increasingly, parents are taking on more active roles in the schools their children attend, particularly with respect to fundraising. The activities of parent groups, councils or societies may or may not be covered under their respective school boards’ liability insurance policies. In cases where activities are run independently, without direct oversight of a school employee or trustee, these parent groups may require their own liability insurance protection. Access Marsh's Group Insurance Application form here.
