Every school has a school community council consisting of the principal, elected teachers and parents.  Parent members must exceed the principal and staff by at least two. Parent input is important in the decisions made by councils. Parent participation on school community councils is important. Councils prepare, adopt, and implement education plans at their school. 

School improvement is the responsibility of everyone, from students and parents to professionals and public officials. As we clarify roles, expectations, and responsibilities, we increase the likelihood of each contributing significantly to this most important enterprise. School community councils are one way we can work together to make schools more successful. A council is an advisory body. All of its actions and plans are overseen by the local school board or local charter board. School Community Councils are intended to encourage parent involvement and to help school community councils work smoothly and effectively.

Why should parents participate?
- Improved student success and well-being for ALL students
- Engaged parent representation in decision making will allow for greater equity
- A diverse pool of parent viewpoints helps bridge cultural gaps
