School Council is a parent led group that supports CCS. Regular meetings include parents as well as CCS Principals, CSCE representatives, Elementary and Secondary Teacher representatives and a High School Student representative to ensure active communication and collaboration. Our Palliser School Division Trustee often attends as well. All CCS parents are part of School Council and are most welcome to participate.

Topics on the agenda last year included:Criminal record check requirements, Student and parent orientations, New website, Parent driver forms,Volunteer SignUp Genius, Communication for student safety, Lockdowns and fire drills, Staff appreciation, Reading volunteers, Cyber safety, homework and flex periods, Chaplain, School calendar, Teacher workload / lunchtime help, Bullying, Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids, Alberta Education budget, ES hot lunches, Stand-up desks, Outdoor art.

All parents are members of this Council, mandated by Alberta Education, that allows for input for the Administration of CCS.

We strive to have the School Council be a place for information, ideas, suggestions, open discussion and resources for the Principals, staff and the parents at Calgary Christian. This Council is the appropriate place to bring your questions, your praise, your suggestions, and your concerns in a respectful and open-minded manner in order that your voice may reach those who are in a position to address and act upon them. We value each parent and the perspective they bring to our Council and our school.
