Local School Council (LSC)

The Local School Council (LSC) is the governing body of the school.

The LSC is responsible for three main duties:

  • School improvement: Provide input into the Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP) than approve and monitor the plan
  • Budget decisions: Ensure that all school funds are spent in line with the CIWP priorities
  • Principal decisions: Hire, evaluate, and make retention decisions regarding the principal's 4 year contract.

LSCs were designed to give greater oversight and control to individual schools and their communities, and are required by law. Each LSC consists of 11 elected members: 6 parents, 2 teachers, 1 staff, 2 community members, 3 student reps if a high school, and the school principal.
