School Community Councils (SCCs)

Contact: Tony Baldwin Superintendent of Education tony.baldwin@sunwestsd.ca

Provincial legislation requires every school in Saskatchewan to have a School Community Council (SCC). A SCC consists of 5-9 elected parents and community members as well as 1-2 students, the principal and one designated teacher. Others may be designated if the community feels it is appropriate. The main role of SCCs is to support student learning. Working with the school staff, SCCs help identify priorities for student learning based on effective practices such as caring and respectful schools and meeting the needs of all learners. SCCs also provide communities with a voice in local education as well as provide parent and community members with opportunities to initiate, support and build programs that enhance learning and student well being. SCCs work with schools to ensure “Success for all!” Over 200 parents, community members, teachers and school-based administrators are members of School Community Councils in Sun West schools. SCCs play an important role in school improvement and enhancing student learning. Student benefits: • Improved marks and graduation rates. • Increased involvement in classroom activities and a more positive attitude towards homework. • Higher attendance rates and greater enrollment in post-secondary education. Parent benefits: • Enhanced communication between parents, administrators and teachers. • More opportunities for learning activities in the home. • Better understanding of how schools operate. Community benefits: • Increased cost-effectiveness due to the pooling of time, money and effort. • Strengthened community pride through involvement in the school’s achievements.

Student Leadership Opportunities

Contact: Roxan Foursha Communications Officer roxan.foursha@sunwestsd.ca

Building on the success of the past six years, the Sun West School Division Student Leadership Program continues to expand the range of leadership opportunities available to Sun West students. An important function of this program is to provide a student perspective to the Board of Education and senior administrative staff. The Board of Education provides yearly support to a delegation of Sun West students to attend the Canadian Student Leadership Conference. The Team Sun West Group Every year a group of 10-15 students are chosen through an application process to be a part of Team Sun West. This group of students meets four times throughout the year to organize, plan, lead and facilitate a two-day, division-wide, student leadership conference that is open to all Sun West students in Grades 7–12. The Youth Consultation Group The purpose of the Youth Consultation Group (YCG) is to provide the Board of Education with student input and ideas concerning School Division policies and practices. Each school with a grade 10-12 component is entitled to one representative on the YCG. The SRC/SLC for each school selects or elects one student to represent their school on the YCG. The YCG meets three times a year for the purpose of planning a meeting with the Board of Education. At these meetings the YCG will design a questionnaire, which they will be responsible for delivering to the students in each of their schools, and also plan a panel discussion that will take place as part of the annual Sun West Student Leadership Conference.


Leadership, Exploration and Development Program (L.E.A.D.) This project began in Sun West this year. It is based on the belief that students learn best when they are involved in the process, by researching, asking and answering their own questions, and creating something new. It involves: • Students working in teams to solve problems in their school, community, province, or beyond. • Teachers helping students learn what is necessary to solve the problem. • Students using research, technology and collaboration. The features of the program: • For grades 11-12 students • Real-world leadership education • Project-based learning • Entrepreneurship opportunities • Collaboration with the University of Saskatchewan • iPad 2 for each student How it works: • We teach using project-based learning, so students know how to apply what they know to the real world by solving problems in their community. • Projects are often cross-curricular, giving students credit for all their work. • Entrepreneurship opportunities exist and are taught in all projects students design. • The program features real-world leadership education, where students learn how to be leaders by doing, not just by hearing about it. • Students collaborate with faculty and students at the Edward’s School of Business and other colleges at the University of Saskatchewan to broaden and enrich learning opportunities. • Each student is given an iPad 2 to facilitate team communication and technology use. • Project-based learning, entrepreneurship training, and leadership education actually begin in kindergarten at the Landis School. Examples of Student Work: • Designing and building a community garden, and managing municipal grant money to do so. • Operating a school recycling program and designing a computer program to manage data. • Piloting the use of iPods and smart phones to better track and manage a cattle operation. • Organizing and implementing a regional leadership conference. • Redesigning the school cafeteria menu to provide foods that are both healthy and appealing. • Designing and building solar ovens for use in the developing world. Also this year, Leadership 20 and 30 classes will be offered to Sun West students. The class was piloted to much success last year with students from Landis School taking the Entrepreneurship strain, and students at North West Central School completing the Tourism / Hospitality strain.
