• Local School Council

    The A+ Education Reform Act of 2000 established school councils in Georgia to "bring communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to:

    • solve difficult education problems,
    • improve academic achievement,
    • provide support for teachers and administrators, and
    • bring parents into the school-based decision-making process.
    School councils provide recommendations and assistance to principals and local boards of education.  The law details the composition of the council, its responsibilities, and procedures for conducting business. Local school councils are composed of at least seven members including the principal, two certified teachers elected by the school's teachers, and parents and community business people.
