Get involved with
your local school council
There are important elections coming this spring – Yukon school council elections take place May 5, 2014.
School councils play an important role because of their authority to make decisions that have an impact on the direction and quality of public education, at the school, community and Yukon levels.
School councils address public education issues that are important to their community.
A locally elected school council plays an instrumental part in what and how the students learn.
School councils can help build, strengthen, and support the social, cultural and academic knowledge base of their community.
Most importantly, school councils keep the public in public education.
Get out and participate in your school community! Nomination papers are in school offices as of April 14, and nominations close at noon on April 24.
We encourage you to consider being a candidate, or nominate candidates who will work as a member of your school community team.
And finally, get out and vote for those you know will provide a broad base of community representation, all sharing a passion and focus on what is best for student learning.
