The Role of the RES Parent Council:

Consult with the principal to ensure students have opportunities to meet Ministry standards, fiscal management is sound and the community's expectations are taken into consideration during school-based planning.

  • Advise the principal and the school board.
  • Consult with other school councils and provincial organizations.
  • Communicate information to the school community.
  • Focus on the best interests of all students.

What RES Parent Councils are Not:

It is important to be mindful, that as with all partners in education, there are limits to the work that can be done by a Parent Council. Roles that are not to be taken on by a Parent Council include:

  • School governance
  • Employment issues
  • School management
  • Listening to complaints
  • It is not the primary role of school councils to fundraise or lobby

We would like to thank those who attend our meetings and encourage parents/guardians of RES students to attend our meetings.

Membership

The membership of the Parent Council shall consist of the following:

  • Parents/Guardians of students enrolled in Rimbey Elementary School
  • Principal of the school - member of the community.
