About Edmonton Public Schools
Getting Involved - Partners in Education
At Edmonton Public Schools, we value our Partners in Education families, school councils, community groups, businesses, post-secondary institutions and donors. Our partnerships exist on many different levels and provide opportunities for involvement for everyone. And, most importantly, they support teaching and learning so that all of our students can have bright futures.
If you would like to receive occasional emails about events/issues of interest to parents/families, please email Jean.Jenkins@epsb.ca and ask to be added to our Partners in Education database.
- Families as Partners
Success at school begins at home. You are the first and most important teacher your child will ever have. As a parent, you can help stimulate your child's enthusiasm for learning. Learn more about how to support your child here!
- Community as Partners
At Edmonton Public Schools, we are always looking for ways to work with the community - service groups, government agencies, community organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, businesses and the public at large - in order to provide students with a variety of learning experiences. View our list of community partners and find out how to get involved!
- School Councils
School Councils play an important role by providing advice and assistance to school principals and Trustees regarding educational issues. Find out more about training, resources, etc. here.
Partners in Education events are intended for all interested members of the Edmonton Public School 'family' ...parents, guardians, families, teachers, community members, public education supporters. Sign up to attend an event!
These generous contributions (in-kind and monetary) support the non-core educational enhancements that help students - Edmonton's future - realize their potential. Find out how you can help.
