Principal Advisory Committee


A council functions as an advisory body, offering input to the local school principal.

The District believes family and community engagement is critical to student and district success. The establishment of Principal Advisory Councils is intended to provide a means by which parents, community members, and school staff can work together to create a better understanding of and mutual respect for each other’s concerns and share ideas for school improvement. 

Council Membership consists of two staff members (one being the current Teacher of the Year), two parents (one being the current PTA president) and two members of the community (one being a Partner in Education representative)
