Citywide Council on High Schools (CCHS)

What is the Citywide Council on High Schools (CCHS)?

There is one Citywide Council on High Schools (CCHS) that advises and comments on educational policies involving public high schools in New York City. The Council has ten voting members who are parents of students in public high schools – one parent from each region. Parents of students in the alternative public high schools are eligible to nominate themselves in the geographical region where their child’s school is located.  A high school senior who serves on the elected leadership of his/her school is appointed by the Chancellor and serves as a voting member for one year. Beginning in the spring of 2005, parent selections will take place every two years.
