About School Council

  • The purpose of school councils is to “bring communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to solve difficult educational problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and administrators, and bring parents into the school-based decision-making process.”

    • Who Serves on a School Council?

      School councils are comprised of a minimum of seven council members:

      • The principal 
      • At least two certificated teachers elected by the teachers 
      • A number of parents elected by the parents, so that parents make up a majority of the council. At least 2 parents must be businesspersons 
      • Other members as specified in the council's bylaws 

      Councilmembers serve a term of two years, or for a term specified in the council's bylaws.
