School Council

All School Council Meetings are open to the public. We invite interested persons to attend.

Councils can have an unlimited number of members; however, as of July 2007 parents must be the majority of the membership. A parent must also serve as Chairperson.

Who Serves on a School Council?
"At a minimum, a School Council is composed of seven members:"
--The Principal
--Two certified teachers elected by the teachers (please list as "Teacher")
--Ten parents (or guardians) elected by the parents (please list as "Parent"); two of the parents must be
businesspersons (please list as "Parent/Business Person")
The school council may, within its bylaws, increase the number of members, as long as the parents remain the majority.

Council Officers
Chair: Lynda Hayes
Co-Chair: Lara Davis
Secretary: Seema Patel
