School Council


Behind every great student, there is a support network. Parents and Guardians make up the backbone of that network. Informed and active parents are a key component of our success at Oakwood CI.  More information on the roles and responsibilities of School Councils can be found on the TDSB website.

School Council Fundraising

Did you know that School Council fundraises for scholarships?  Here are the 2022 Graduates from our DD program who were all awarded a Mastermind gift card for an educational item as a scholarship.




Elections will be held REMOTELY during our first School Council meeting at 6:30pm on Tuesday, September 26th, 2023


Election of Council Parent/Guardian Representatives

  • Our Parent/Guardian Representative Council consists of a minimum of 3 parent/guardian reps and a maximum of 7.
  • Once the members are voted in (or acclaimed as appropriate) as representatives a separate meeting will be held to determine roles such as Chair, Co-chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Health and Wellness rep or various Committee leads (by election if needed).  Only elected members of the council of representatives may run for and vote on these positions.
  • All parents/guardians with children in our school are eligible to be elected to the school council.
  • A person is not qualified to be a parent member of council if he or she is employed at the school or elsewhere within or by the TDSB, unless he or she takes reasonable steps to inform people qualified to vote in the election of parent members of that employment.
  • If there is more interest than positions available an election will be held at the School Council Meeting on Sept 26th and the list of candidates and a brief bio will be shared earlier that day via email.
  • Further information is available on the TDSB website.
