It is time to start thinking about the Community Council elections, which will take place in September.
School Community Councils are elected parent/guardian and employee representatives who work together with the Principal to increase student achievement. By law, the Council is responsible to review school data and develop plans for school improvement. Councils also allocate the LAND Trust funds to assist the school in reaching achievement goals.

School Community Councils meet once every month, for a term of two years. To be eligible, a parent must have a student enrolled in the school for at least one of the years and may not be a licensed employee at the school. We invite you to become involved in your school’s Community Council by declaring your candidacy. If you are interested in running for your School Community Council, please fill out the Declaration of Candidacy form and return it to your school’s Principal by August 31 @ 3:00 pm.
Schools will be holding their elections on-line September 18 – 20, 2017.
