What is a school council?

A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

School councils are to assist principals in:

  • Identifying the educational needs of students attending the school

  • Reviewing the annual school building budget
