Committees

Most of the Governing Council's work is accomplished in standing and ad-hoc committees. As members of our school community, you do not need to be elected members of the Governing Council in order to participate as committee co-chairs and/or members. We invite you to read more about our Governing Council committees using the menu links to the left to see where you can lend your energy, ideas and expertise.

Committees are co-chaired by at least one parent and one teacher or staff member. You can volunteer to chair a committee by contacting the current chair or Governing Council President at the beginning of each school year. The process of selecting parent chairs is informal and led by the current committee chairs, based on expressed individual interest and experience with the committee, then ratified by the Governing Council.  A great way to start is by joining a committee, which you can do by contacting a committee chair (see each committee page to the left). You can also use the online volunteer form to express interest in helping committees.

Committee meetings are announced by emails and via the website calendar.  Committees meet on campus, and some chairs also arrange teleconferences for those not able to be on site.

Please join us in working on committees to ensure that all of our students receive the highest quality educational experience possible.

There’s a committee that needs YOU!
