What is the TDSB Student SuperCouncil?


The TDSB Student SuperCouncil, is a lot like a school based Student Council. Democratically elected students from all four quadrants in the TDSB form this council. SuperCouncil allows the student voice to be heard in the TDSB Board room. SuperCouncil holds and/or participates in a large web of meetings throughout the year: Executive Meetings, Quadrant Meetings, Sub-Committee Meetings and TDSB Boardroom Meetings.
