School Council

2019-2020 School Year

The West Carleton School Council (WCSS) is a committee of parents/guardians who volunteer their time to come together, learn about what is happening at our school, share thoughts and provide suggestions, and work to enhance our learning environment.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month. Our meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. and are held in the library at West Carleton Secondary School. 

All parents/guardians are welcome to be a part of this fantastic group! 
Our first School Council meeting of the year will be held on Tuesday September 17th beginning at 6:30pm in our School Library.  All parents are welcome to be part of our School Council. At the start of our first meeting we will hold elections for our elected positions.  Those positions, along with a description of each position, is listed below for your reference.
