About us

About Us

At Nellie McClung School, we have both a School Council and a Parent Advisory Council (PAC).

The Nellie McClung School Council is ALL OF US – parents, teachers, staff, community. All parents or guardians of students at Nellie McClung School are automatically part of its School Council. The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is the fundraising charitable entity of the Nellie McClung School Council. School and Parent Advisory Councils play a vital role in the school community supporting school activities, assisting in implementing programs and operate fundraising activities that provide important extras that might not be financially possible otherwise.

School Council’s purpose is to advise the principal and the board respecting matters relating to the school.  School councils in Alberta are regulated by the School Act. (more about the School Council)

Parent Advisory Council’s purpose is to support and enrich school programs or specific programs in the school that address the needs and success of students.  As a registered charitable entity, it is regulated by the Societies Act. (more about the Parent Advisory Council (PAC))

2021 ASCA Resolutions – HAVE YOUR SAY

2021 ASCA Resolutions – HAVE YOUR SAY

This year’s AGM will be held on April 25, 2021 (online). I am unable to attend this year’s virtual meeting but have arranged for another school to take our votes by proxy. As a result, we need to submit our votes on the proposed resolutions by April 23 at 8am. 

Any interested Nellie parent is invited to vote on the resolutions. I will tally the votes and compile a position for our school.

To have your say in this year’s online votes:

STEP 1) Review the resolutions in full through this link: 2021 Resolution Package:
https://www.albertaschoolcouncils.ca/public/download/files/173828

STEP 2) Cast your vote though this google form by April 23, 8am.

https://forms.gle/Y7DvGAKBkoHPJeHE7


The resolutions are voted on as is, with a yes or no vote. After you have reviewed the resolutions, please complete the google forms below and I will compile and submit our votes based on the majority for each resolution. 

I realize this is a substantial amount of content for interested parents to review. As your representative on PAC I am working toward having a dedicated council meeting in the future to discuss these resolutions at length each year in March when they come out. In lieu of that, this year I would like to share a resource document from a non-partisan, non-profit public education advocacy group fighting for the rights of all children to an equitable and accessible public education system. Although not affiliated with SOS, I and the chair of your Nellie PAC are in agreement with this voting guide for your consideration.

Thank you for your participation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
