CLB Council & Parent Group

School Council Meeting January 19, 2022

Under Alberta Education’s School Fee Regulation, schools must consult with parents prior to setting school fees for the upcoming school year.

Our next school council meeting will be taking place on January 19, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. (It may be held virtually, so please watch for details on our school website or sent out through the Parent Council email list).   During that time, I’ll be sharing information about our current fee structure, posing specific questions about priorities, and asking you to provide your feedback as we plan for the 2022-23 school year. While many of these activities and services enhance students’ educational experience, we want to ensure these fees aren’t cost prohibitive for families.

Specifically, we will be asking for input on the following:

  • Optional courses and associated fees
  • Noon hour supervision
  • Field trips and associated fees
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Non-curricular travel (for example, ski trips and band camps)
  • Non-curricular goods and services (for example, student union and yearbooks)

I understand not all families will be available to attend the meeting but it’s still important we get as much input from the school community as possible. Following the meeting, materials will be shared on our website (www.cloverbar.ca) for your review, and an email address provided so you can submit a written response.

 

School administration will use feedback provided to help determine fees for 2022-23, which will then be shared at the April school council meeting, posted to our website, and shared via link through email.

School Council and Parents' Group

School Council and Parents’ Group

At Clover Bar Junior High, we believe that parent involvement is a critical factor in the educational achievements of our students. Our parents are active partners in education, whether they assist in the classroom, participate in the school council or support us at home. 

At Clover Bar, there are two parent groups: School Council and Parents’ Group. The Clover Bar School Council and Parents’ Group are legally two separate governing bodies who provide excellent support to the school. The School Council advises and provides input into school direction and activities such as the School Education Plan, transportation issues and our community. The Parents’ Group focuses on fundraising for such items as computer hardware, furniture, school beautification or other school projects. While these two bodies are separate entities, the same set of elected officers may run both groups and both meetings are held on the same evening. Both groups create and publish separate agendas and minutes and are regulated by different regulations. 

School Council and Parents’ Group are the elected parent volunteer groups who advise the principal and the school board respecting any matter relating to the school.  These councils are regulated by The School Councils Regulation (113/2016) and  School Council Guide (revised 2016). The School Council Guide provides information on the operation of school councils and on key topics of importance to school councils and other education stakeholders.  For more  information, please visit the Alberta Education website at: http://education.alberta.ca/parents/role/schoolcouncils.aspx

In our school, the School Council and the Parents’ Group typically schedule 8 monthly meetings to discuss a variety of topics and share information.  Both meetings happen consecutively. We welcome all parents to join us!!
