School Council

The Riverdale School Council is a group of volunteer parents, school staff, and representatives from the Student Council. We meet once a month to discuss matters affecting our school and our students. If you are a parent/guardian of a Riverdale student, you have the right to participate in the Council and are welcome to attend all meetings.

At our meetings, we deal with issues such as safety, EQAO student testing, special initiatives, and community engagement. We consult on school committees, according to TDSB mandates. We also have guests join us to speak about issues like course selection, and parenting teens.

The School Council also plays an important role in the flow of information between the School Board and the school community. We participate in our Ward 15 Council with our area Superintendent & elected Trustee, as well as on PIAC (Parent Involvement Advisory Committee) initiatives.

Most importantly, the Riverdale School Council plays an important role in your child’s education. Parental involvement is directly linked to student achievement. We are always working on ways to communicate with our families to improve our children’s success.
