School Community Council

Every school has a school community council consisting of the principal, elected teachers and a majority of elected parents. Charter schools are instead required to have a trust lands committee that includes more elected parents of students currently attending the school than all other members of the committee. Effective school community councils and trust lands committees work to address the most important academic needs of students. Some of the council’s activities are required by law and rule, but most are simply expressions of community-spirited individuals trying to do what they know must be done to help students succeed.

School Community Council (SCC) meetings are usually held the second Wednesday of the month at 11:00am at ATEC. Parents are invited to come and participate at anytime.  The Committee Chair and Co-Committee Chair are nominated and voted in for two year terms at the first community council meeting of the school year.
