School Council - All parents with children attending school are members of their local school council and are encouraged to participate in council activities. Councils usually meet on a monthly basis. School Councils are established in all schools and serve as a vehicle for parents/legal guardians, principals and teachers to meet and work together towards common goals. School Council Chairs also meet with one another, district administrators and members of the Board of Trustees at district-wide meetings. Please speak to your child's school principal to get involved.
