Yesterday, Jackman School Council held elections for the 2018-2019 school year. Each TDSB school council is made up of elected parent volunteers, as well as representatives from school staff and administration, and the community. Council’s role is to serve as an important direct link between parents and guardians of Jackman students, the school administration and the wider TDSB community. This year’s elected council includes several returning members as well as new faces, and we’re all eager to meet as many of you as possible and make this a great year. You can view this year’s Jackman School Council here.
Council advises the principal and the TDSB on issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, and criteria for selection of new principals. In addition to regularly attending monthly council meetings, council members also plan and run several fun, community-building activities throughout the year, and fundraise to meet our budgeted needs and goals.
If you’re interested in joining council this year, please let us know. We still have vacant positions for secretary, as well as outdoor environment committee, treasurer and volunteer/social co-chairs. Connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more info or are interested in taking on one of these council roles this year!
