What is School Council?
All Parents and Staff at Fort Mcmurray Christian School are members of the School Council. The school council advises and consults with the principal on any matter relating to the school. We are a means for parents to work together with the school to enhance and support student learning. We meet once a month and all parents are encouraged to attend. It is a great place to find out what is happening at the school and how to best support your child.
School Council had its first meeting for the 2021-22 school year on Tuesday, September 8. As an Alternative program within the Public Board, many of the individuals present were new to school council so an overview was given of our Current Operating Procedure, which has a few amendments from our Previous Operating Procedure. In our next meeting (notification of date by parent emails and Weekly memo) we will be setting priorities for the year which may include hot lunch, anti-bullying, school improvement, waste reduction, school supplies, library, and Bible curriculum. Come and bring your ideas on these topics (or others) and join in strengthening our school.

Accountability Pillar Surveys
Alberta Education invites you to play an important role in your child’s education through the Accountability Pillar Surveys. Every year the provincial government sends out surveys to teachers, students and parents as a way of gathering information on the quality of education provided by schools in the province. Teacher and student surveys are conducted online, parents are surveyed by mail.
To find out more information about the surveys this note from 2013 gives a good idea of what it is all about. Accountability Pillar Survey Letter to Parents.
