NLFSC encourages all School Council Members (parents, teachers, community representatives, administrators and students) to attend our Biennial Meeting.

 

Resolutions will be presented at the meeting. If you cannot attend – your resolution can be put forth by another delegate or a member of the NLFSC Executive.

As in the past, please discuss the cost of attending this meeting (travel, meals, and accommodations) with your School Councils and School Administrators. The cost of attending participants is sometimes included in the schools budget.

(Please note: NLFSC continues to advocate for operational funding for each School Council, so our members do not have “to take from school funds” in order to attend our meeting).
