School councils

School Councils provide a way for Yukon residents to get involved in the education of children.

School Councils have three to seven members. Members are elected to two-year terms and receive honoraria for attending regular meetings.

Most Yukon schools are run by the Public Schools Branch of Department of Education. École Émilie Tremblay and Académie Parhélie, the French First language schools, are run by a school board, the Commission scolaire francophone du Yukon, (CSFY).

The Department of Education funds School Councils and CSFY.
