School Council Revised Bylaw Survey

D.A. Morrison School Council has been working on establishing Council Bylaws to improve the ways that it operates. Following an initial set of feedback, Council has created another short survey to give parents an opportunity to provide feedback on these revised draft bylaws.

You can take the survey at http://bit.ly/RevisedByLaw-feedback.
You will find a link to the bylaws within the survey, or you can look at them at http://bit.ly/DAdraftbylaws-revised.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Please note that there will be a vote to adopt these bylaws at the April 10 Council meeting.
