CAPSC October Meeting

Oct. 16 development session for CBE school councils – hosted by CAPSC and CBE

The Calgary Association of Parents and School Councils (CAPSC) and the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) are pleased to co-host a development session for CBE school councils. This session will be delivered by Alberta School Councils’ Association as follows:

Date: Wednesday, Oct. 16
Time: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Place: Multipurpose Room, Education Centre, 1221 – 8 Street S.W.
Parking: free underground parking provided (access off 12 Avenue)
Topic: Tools for effective school councils

We were planning to have ASCA at our October meeting this year, and when we learned that CBE also wanted to host an ASCA workshop evening, it seemed natural to join up for this project.

ASCA has offered workshops to schools now for some time.  One of our executive members participated in their workshop at her school recently - here's what she had to say

As CAPSC executive, we feel that your school council will be greatly enhanced by attending this evening workshop.  It is the kind of information that is fundamental to operating a successful school council and working with your administration in a positive, collaborative way.  Attending this ASCA session will be a great benefit to the children of your school, and, in the end, that is our ultimate goal!
