We're looking for great teachers, principals, administrators, executives, and more. Join us today.
NYC’s Education Councils are constituted every two years (in odd years) according to rules set by state law. The three mandatory officers (president, treasurer, recording secretary) of PA/PTAs vote for the parent members as part of the state-mandated selection process. There are also members who are appointed by the Borough Presidents and the Public Advocate. The selected candidates and appointed members then serve a two-year term than begins on July 1st of the selection year.
The 2015 Selection Process will begin with an official announcement by the Chancellor in January, 2015. Candidate applications will be available on a dedicated website on February 11, 2015. For details on the 2015 Selection Process, please visit nycparentleaders.org.If you are interested in running for an Education Council, you should speak with current council members and attend council meetings to familiarize yourself with what your council does.
Occasionally, councils have vacant seats through member resignations; filling those seats is very important for councils to be able to function at the highest level. Should you find that your council has a vacancy, you may consider applying to fill the unexpired term.
Look at the list of current members and contact your council to learn about vacancies.
Procedures for filling vacancies are largely up to the councils, but must include consultation with the parent constituencies. Download and complete an application.Community Education Council Application Arabic |Bengali |Chinese |French |Haitian Creole |Korean |Russian |Spanish |Urdu
