Secondary Principals' Council
The Secondary Principals' Council (SPC) represents secondary and area school principals who are members of PPTA.
The independent voice of SPC reflects the unique role principals play in the education system - a voice that is often sought by educational bodies, policy makers and the media.
SPC also negotiates the Secondary Principals' Collective Agreement with the Ministry of Education on behalf of principal members. A PPTA advisory officer acts as advocate in conjunction with Council members on the negotiating team.
