• Winship School Parent Council

    The School Parent Council (SPC) brings all parents in the school community together to support the school and advocate for quality education. It is the independently established voice of all the parents in the school community. It is also the place where parents can express concerns, advocate for the school, and plan school activities and events. As the parent or guardian of a BPS student, you are automatically a member of your School Parent Council. The SPC must elect an Executive Committee to take steps to ensure that it is active, diverse and representing all families within the school.

    *All School Parent Council Meetings are held at the Presentation School Foundation Community Center located at 640 Washington St. in Brighton, unless otherwise noted.
