Community Education Council members are representatives of the parents and community-at-large. They live or work in the community, and send their children to the local schools, and their role is to reflect the needs and wishes of the community regarding the education of its children. Community Education Council members are consulted on many important matters, and in turn, must consult with parents. Their meetings are open to the public, and provide an opportunity for the community to be heard on educational issues. The Councils are responsible for promoting the achievement of educational standards and objectives relating to the instruction of students and should establish a positive working relationship with the community superintendent and local instructional superintendents. Council members must hold quarterly meetings with PA/PTA officers as well as provide assistance to School Leadership Teams. A Council member also has a voice in establishing educational policy for the district and in evaluating the community superintendents and the local instructional superintendents assigned to the district. In addition, a Community Education Council member is responsible for approving zoning lines submitted by the community superintendent, consistent with the Chancellor’s Regulations.
