School Council

Establishment of a School Council for Bribie Island State High School

Draft School Council Constitution  (PDF)

All Independent Public Schools are required to establish a School Council.
School councils enable greater involvement of the school community and other stakeholders, such as industry, in setting the strategic direction for the school. The school council plays a role in monitoring and informing the school’s strategic direction in a way that achieves the best learning outcomes for the school’s students.

The school council:
–  monitors the school’s strategic direction
–  approves plans, policies and other strategic school documents including the annual estimate of revenue and expenditure
–  monitors the implementation of the plans, policies and other strategic documents
–  advises the school principal about strategic matters.

The establishment of a school council will not impact on the functions and powers of a P&C. The P&C president will be included on the school council to represent the views of the P&C Association. School councils have responsibility to approve documents that set the strategic direction of the school, but are not involved in daily operational aspects.
The first step in establishing a School Council is the presentation of a draft constitution for consultation with and ratification by parents of children attending the school and the school’s staff and students.
The draft School Council Model Constitution for Bribie Island State High School is available for DOWNLOAD HERE or in hard copy from the administration office. The consultation period is for 30 days and at the conclusion of this time, parents and school staff will be informed of special meetings to vote on the adoption of the constitution. These meeting times will be publicised prior to the conclusion of the 30 day period.
