School Advisory Councils (SACs)

The Minister is talking to parents, teachers, principals and students about these very questions. We know that they will be able to decide on how some funding can be used. We will have more to share soon.

Along with representation on the provincial advisory council, diversity must increase within the membership of school advisory councils. This will help respond to the unique needs in rural areas and all parts of the province. Mi’kmaq and African Nova Scotians are also represented on the Minister’s Council on African Nova Scotian Education and the Council on Mi’kmaq Education. Ways to elevate voices on these councils from across the province are also being pursued.
