School Council Members:

  • Members are elected for 2-year terms
  • To provide for a variety of perspectives and voices on the School Councils, a parent/guardian will be eligible to serve on one School Council per year.
  • Attend 4-6 meetings per year
  • According to the State Ethics Commission's Opinion EC-COI-93-21 (October 19, 1993), school councils are considered municipal agencies and their members, although they serve without compensation, are considered municipal employees for purposes of the conflict of interest law. This provision may be especially relevant to parent and community members of councils who may serve on other municipal agencies, boards and commissions within the community or who may do business with the city or town agencies.
