School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.

Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee.

Why join us on school council?

Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your child’s educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s education, the level of student achievement increases.

Parents/guardians of a student Marchmont Public School can vote in a school council election  by becoming a parent member of the school council by completing the nomination form and returning it to Marchmont at the end of September each school year.

Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involv​ement Comm​ittee
