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.
