School Councils play an important role in the Holy Spirit Catholic School Division. They are a place for parents, principals, teachers, secondary students and community representatives to come together to effectively support and enhance students learning, as well as provide consultation to principal and school board.

Alberta School Councils' Association (ASCA)
Holy Spirit Catholic School Division maintains a membership with the ASCA because of the exceptional resources and services it provides to school councils.
On October 15, 2018, the Board has invited the ASCA to provide a workshop for our division's School Councils. More information will be forthcoming!
In Alberta, there are two pieces of legislation that govern School Councils:
- ThoughtExchange "Insights and Results" for 2018
- Budget for 2018/2019 (Available after the May 30, 2018 Special Board Meeting)
