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 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.
