School Council

School council helps to increase communication between schools and their communities and to serve the needs of students. The school council liaises through the school principal and is an important link between parents and the school community. 


Some of the key duties of a school council include: 

Building a sense of community 
Organizing extra-curricular activities in the school
Coordinating school-based services and community partnerships
Enhancing the home–school relationship 
Establishing school–community communication strategies
Developing methods of reporting to parents/guardians and the community

OCV Elementary School Council

OCV Elementary is establishing our School Council for the year.  School Council meetings will be held virtually each month using Google Meets.  Meeting dates will be established once the School Council is formed.  All parents are welcome to attend meetings.  A link to the Google Meets will be sent out each month.  Whether you can make one meeting or many, any involvement is appreciated.  The first step is to form a School Council through elections.  OCV Elementary School Council elections will take place on Wednesday, September 28th through electronic ballot.  Any parent/guardian of a student enrolled in our school can be elected as a parent member of the school council.  Parents can nominate themselves or another parent using these nomination forms.

Form to nominate a candidate

Self-nomination form

Each candidate profile will be posted on the OCV Elementary website.  The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, September 23rd.  An important reminder - members are elected to the school council by the parent community.  Once elected, the members elect, from amongst themselves, the officers of council chair (or co-chairs), vice chair, treasurer and secretary.  This will happen at the first meeting scheduled in October.
