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.

 

What is the Mandate of the Student SuperCouncil?

  • to represent all TDSB students
  • to help ensure students’ needs and interests are met with the proper attention

What precisely does the Student SuperCouncil do?

 

SuperCouncil builds a bridge between the TDSB Student Body and TDSB Executives allowing Student Voice to be heard in the Boardroom. We discuss issues and concerns, plan board-wide initiatives, foster student leadership and facilitate communication between the TDSB Boardroom and all students in the TDSB.

 

What are some of the Student SuperCouncil’s accomplishments?

  • Working with the Toronto Foundation for Student Success during Feeding Toronto’s Hungry Students Week  to raise funds towards nutritional programs across the city.
  • Hosting the most successful Leadership Camp in TDSB history with the most diverse group of students ever.
  • Speaking out against teacher cuts, obtained student consultation with the TDSB budget, and worked on ensuring that students get a greater voice in their schools and in the Boardroom.
  • Writing and passing in committee the revolutionary Student Leadership Policy which will ensure that all students have equitable and sustained access to leadership opportunities
  • Creating a SAC handbook.
