Purpose of the School Council

With O.C.G.A. § 20-2-85/86 (2010), the General Assembly of Georgia created councils to “bring communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to solve difficult education problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and administrators, and bring parents into the school-based decision-making process.” School Councils shall provide advice, recommendations, and assistance and represent the community of parents and business. The council is accountable to the constituents they serve and shall:

  • Maintain a school-wide perspective on issues.
  • Participate in council meetings.
  • Participate in information and training programs.
  • Act as a link between the school council and the community.
  • Encourage the participation of parents and others within the school community.
  • Work to improve student achievement.
  • Provide advice and recommendations to the school principal and local board of education.
