Parent Class Reps

Parent Class Rep Functions:

  • Invite parents of the classroom being represented to voluntarily provide contact information (email address and telephone number) to the classroom rep that may be used by the classroom rep solely for the purposes of sending and receiving information regarding School Council related events, issues and initiatives and will not be used for any other purpose.
  • Class reps are first requested to introduce themselves to their classroom teacher(s) and encouraged to meet regularly with them (e.g., once a month). During these meetings they are encouraged to discuss the needs of the students in that particular classroom and what School Council may be able to do to help. Some examples of needs might be: a shortage of text books, a need for parent volunteers to read to students at some point during the school day, a need for parent volunteers at an upcoming school trip, or perhaps a need for donations of craft supplies for a special project.
  • Act as a messenger or conduit between School Council and classroom parents. Solicit feedback from classroom parents for School Council related issues/events/initiatives. Represent parents who cannot attend School Council meetings – ask questions on their behalf and take back answers to the questions and additional information.
  • Personally invite and encourage parents of students in the classroom to get involved in the school in whatever way they might be able to.
  • Solicit additional feedback from classroom teachers regarding School Council related events or initiatives.
  • Project a positive inclusive image of School Council to convey the fact that parents are welcome in the school and School Council serves to represent parents in advising school staff as to how better to serve the needs of the students and the greater school community.
