Parent Engagement

Durham District School Board (DDSB) recognizes the importance of partnerships with parents and guardians in creating positive learning environments. The School Community Council (SCC) is an advisory body that makes recommendations to the Principal and school board to further student achievement and well-being. Every school in the DDSB has an SCC. The SCC is made up of parents, school staff and community members and should represent the diversity of the school community.

School Community Council Nomination Form

To join the SCC as a voting member at your school, complete a nomination form in September. All members of the SCC are elected within the first 30 days of the school year. 


Brooklin High School Community Council

School Community Council (SCC) is a group of elected volunteers including parents, teachers, administrators, students, and community representatives working collaboratively to improve student achievement.

SCC members support school based activities to strengthen the advisory role and partnerships with the school and the Durham District School Board. SCC members provide advice to the school on issues affecting students and school, as well as enhancing the accountability of the educational system to parents of our community.

SCC meetings are very informative and open to our school community. All parents are welcome to attend.

Membership lists, meeting dates, agendas, annual reports, minutes and other relevant documents will be posted here.
