Something I have observed over the past several years is that School Councils function better if: a) the school community actually knows the role of the school council and b) the school, community knows who's on the current council. Posting this information early in the year is the responsibility of the principal. if it is not happening, make sure you communicate it yourselves.

Hi Aliya, I think you asked me a question and I just want to make sure I have understood you correctly. Do you want to get more information about what studies you would need to undertake to move from the area of psychology, marketing to more of an education research role? If so, here are a few links: Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (or U of T) and York University may have some courses of interest. Georgian college also has an program for graduates (not just in education) but to train to become a research analyst. There may be others here in the online community who could give you more information. Hope these links give you someplace to start gathering a bit more info anyway... Thanks so much for your message! It is wonderful to hear how you became involved so soon and decided it was your goal not to feel like "a guest" in the school. Can you come to our conference? It's at York University. The cost for one day, including lunch is $60 and we childcare is free. Here's a link to more info about that:
Let me know if you have any questions about the conference. I hope you can come!

Hi Aliya and welcome to this online community! It's a great place to share ideas, brainstorm, or ask questions. You'll find that many people are willing to share their thoughts and ideas. It's also wonderful to see you are involved at the school and that you found out about this space already, even though your kids are so young. It often takes parents some time to get to know how things work before joining the school council and such. How did you get interested in being involved so soon? It's terrific!

Sex education in schools

The government got nervous about the sex education component of the new Health and Physical Education curriculum for elementary schools and has decided, in its wisdom, to withdraw it. Since Friday, an amazing discussion has been going on in this online community. It's well worth reading the whole thing, from top to bottom. And now you can read the curriclum too! The Ministry of Education (also in its wisdom) took the…See More

Hats: On or Off?

I recently posted a discussion with some questions about school dress codes and also mentioned hats as well. thought I would start a separate discussion topic focused on hats since there are a few good blog posts that do just that (and winter is coming... :( ).  I hope this helps discussions specific to "hats in school" at the school level and…See More
