• About the School Parent Council

    • Every school must have a School Parent Council (SPC). All parents who have children at that school are members. Only parents can be members.
    • The SPC is the place where parents can express their concerns, advocate for the school, and plan school activities and events. 
    • The SPC elects its Executive Committee at a meeting held each year in the fall, not later than October 15. Also elected are parents to serve on the:
      • School Site Council
      • Citywide Parent Council
      • District English Learner Advisory Council (DELAC)
      • Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SPEDPac)
    • SPC officers are supposed to meet regularly with the principal to discuss school-wide issues.
    • School Parent Councils are required to follow open meeting law.
