ACES School Council Constitution

Why do we need a constitution? Each school council is responsible for developing and maintaining a school council constitution that outlines the way in which it will conduct its business. Every school council’s constitution must comply with both the provincial regulations and the OCDSB’s policies and procedures and, at a minimum, must include:

  • Our council’s name, purpose, and objectives

  • Our council’s officers and members

  • The responsibilities of the officers and members on our council

  • Our council’s requirements for meetings, quorum, and voting rights

  • Our council’s rules for conduct at meetings

  • The procedures to amend our school council’s constitution/bylaws

  • Our council’s procedures for annual elections and filling interim vacancies (for example through election, rotation, or by seeking volunteers)

  • Our council’s procedures to address any conflicts of interest

  • Our council’s resolution process for internal school council disputes

  • Our council’s affiliation with other organizations, such as the Ottawa-Carleton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC)

  • Any other committees of our council and their membership
