At the Peel District School Board, our mission is to inspire success, confidence and hope in each student – each and every day. This year's Annual Report captures the incredible work that took place in Peel schools and work sites during the 2016-2017 school year, and that continues to happen every day. 
You can view it online at to see, first-hand, how our staff and families work together to make a difference in the lives of students.  http://www.peelschools.org/aboutus/annualreport/Pages/default.aspx 

Each Peel board school has a school council—a group focused on helping students succeed.

Councils offer advice to the school principal on a number of topics. In Peel, most of the work of councils focuses on three main areas: school community communication strategies, ways of responding to parents and the community and school code of behaviour. School councils include parents, school staff, community representatives and, in some cases, students.

We welcome and encourage the participation of parents and community members in our schools, and on councils.

Everything you need to know about school councils includes information on the role of council, the term of office for elected positions and more. You can also find out more in Your School Council Guide — a one-stop shop for school council members in Peel. Visit the School Council section of the Peel board website for more information.
