The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of School Councils (NLFSC) is the provincial umbrella group for parents, teachers, high school students (where applicable), and community supporters who are committed to enhancing the quality of school programs and improving the levels of student achievement in our schools. NLFSC provides school councils and parent groups with a voice on educational issues and encourages parental involvement at all levels of education.
NLFSC is a non-profit organization governed by an elected, volunteer, Board of Directors. Membership consists of school-based parent groups, who are represented through School Councils, Home and School Associations, Parent-Teacher Associations and Parent Advisory Committees. Membership is optional, renewed annually, and is held by the School Council.
As a major stakeholder in education, the NLFSC continues to express its point of view and work to influence policy or program changes before final decisions are made. NLFSC is working to strengthen communication between the Department of Education, School Districts, the Federation, and councils. NLFSC works with these educational partners to bring areas of concern to the government’s attention.
