2016 / 2017

The Parent Council is made up of all parents and guardians of Brown students. The Executive of the Parent Council acts as a representative for parents and liaises with the school administration on a regular basis.



There are approximately 20 other members at large in addition to the executive of the Parent Council. The Executive meets on a monthly basis to keep informed regarding school activities initiated by both the school staff and the Parent Council. The Parent Council organizes and implements various programs, events and campaigns, many of which are outlined in the Fundraising and World Changers pages of the website.

The administration will often come to the Parent Council with requests for input and assistance in school activities. A great way to find out more about what is going on at the level of the school as well as at the TDSB is to attend a Parent Council meeting. The meetings are held monthly, alternating between morning meetings and evening meetings in the hopes that this will make it easier for parents to attend some meetings. All members (parents and guardians of Brown School students) are invited to attend, each month during the school year. These meetings will often include a speaker or will focus on a specific issue that is felt to be relevant to Parent Council members.
