Parent Engagement

Durham District School Board (DDSB) recognizes the importance of partnerships with parents and guardians in creating positive learning environments. The School Community Council (SCC) is an advisory body that makes recommendations to the Principal and school board to further student achievement and well-being. Every school in the DDSB has an SCC. The SCC is made up of parents, school staff and community members and should represent the diversity of the school community.

Join our School Community Council

To join the SCC as a voting member at your school, contact the school Principal. You will need to fill out a nomination form in September. All members of the SCC are elected within the first 30 days of the school year.

Regional SCC meetings
