    Administrative history

    In 1929, the Alberta Federation of Home and School Associations formed as an affiliate of the Canadian Home and School Federation. In 1994, after amendments to The School Act, the association became the Alberta Home and School Councils' Association (AHSCA).

    Comprised of school-based parent groups operating under various names (home and school associations, parent advisory councils, parent-teacher associations, etc.), the Association presents a parental perspective to government and partners in education. As a not-for-profit society, a 15 member elected volunteer board of directors representing parents from across Alberta governs the Association. Parents gain membership through their school council, and province-wide membership includes rural, urban, public, separate, charter and francophone schools. In pursuit of their objectives, the AHSCA provides programs, resources and services to promote and support school council effectiveness.
