Citywide Education Councils
The Citywide Education Councils promote parent involvement at the city level. Each Council advocates for a specific population rather than a district: high school students, students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), English language learners, and students in District 75 programs.
There are 4 Citywide Councils:
- Citywide Council on High Schools (CCHS): 10 parents (2 per borough) selected by high school parents; and 3 appointees (one each from the Public Advocate, CCSE and CCELL)
- Citywide Council on Special Education (CCSE): 9 parents of students with IEPs, selected by parents; and 2 appointees from the Public Advocate;
- Citywide Council on English Language Learners (CCELL): 9 parents of students in a bilingual or ESL program, selected by parents; and 2 appointees from the Public Advocate
- Citywide Council for District 75 (CCD75): 9 parents of students in a District 75 program, selected by parents; and 2 appointees from the Public Advocate
All Citywide Councils also include a non-voting high student.
