Parent involvement in their child’s school is highly correlated to student success. At Merton, your presence is welcome and your contribution is valued. Here are a few of the many ways in which you can make a difference for all students:
The Governing Board is a committee legislated by the Government, in which equal numbers of parents and Staff are represented. The objective of this committee is to make decisions locally that are in the best interests of each school’s students. The mandate of the Governing Board is to discuss proposed policies which affect the daily routine of Merton students. Decisions are made regarding such items as building security, field-trips and the school budget. According to the Education Act, elections for parent members whose two year term has expired must take place in September of each year, at the call of the Chairperson of the Governing Board.
Parents may contact any member of the Governing Board in any of the following ways:
- Telephone- Call the school office- 514-481-7425 and leave a message for the appropriate person.
- E-mail- email@example.com
- In Writing- Correspondence can be left with the School Secretary in the office.
