The Council is responsible for making decisions regarding the strategic direction of the school including: 

 a.) Approve the school strategic plan and updates 

 b.) Approve the annual budget and annual resource allocations 

 c.) Manage the Request for Flexibility process 

 d.) Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
