A school advisory council is a legally  

recognized  body composed of the principal and representatives of 

teachers and support staff, students, parents, and community 

members who work together in an advisory

capacity to increase the

quality of education  being provided by the school.  

The fundamental purpose of the school advisory council is to ensure that 

all students receive the best possible learning opportunities 

by engaging all partners in an ongoing 

process of shared 

discussion, planning and development for school improvement.
