We’re filling vacancies on our Inclusive Education Parent and Community Advisory Panel and are accepting applications until 4:00 pm on July 3, 2024.

It takes a village to do this important work and we need additional perspectives to help us continue to build a welcoming, inclusive experience for all children in our schools.

What's involved? 

Our Inclusive Education Parent and Community Advisory Panel includes up to 10 parent and/or community members (with urban and rural representation) and up to 3 representatives from Division administration.

  • providing information and advice to Division administrators; and,
  • working to bring Alberta Education’s Principles of Inclusive Education to life in our classrooms.

Panel members:

  • serve a two-year term, with approximately six meetings each school year, and opportunities to sit on additional focused sub-committee groups.
  • Be available to attend these meetings, with the majority occurring in person and during the day.
