School Councils' Conferences
School Councils' Conferences take place every year, usually in the spring. This event provides a great opportunity for delegates to connect with others from throughout our Yukon school communities and to participate in discussions and information sessions. There are training sessions, presentations, information updates and announcements, and workshops on a variety of relevant topics and issues.
These gatherings are of great benefit to School Councils and others interested in Yukon public education. They promote and enable a shared gathering that focuses on improving student learning through informed decision-making."VALUING DIVERSITY & SUPPORTING STUDENT SUCCESS"
