School Council – Statement of Purpose


The School Council, in serving as representatives of our larger school community, seeks to enrich and enhance opportunities for teaching and learning that result in improved learning outcomes for students. We strive to improve the supports available to teachers, students and their families as we work together to better meet the needs of all our learners.

Responsibilities of the School Council


As outlined in the Education Reform Act of 1993, the School Council is comprised of representatives from the parent body, the school staff, and the community at large.  Elections are held to ensure that all parents and staff have a full opportunity for representation.  The council has specific responsibilities that include, but are not limited to, examining the following topics:

·   Class size and impact on student achievement

·   School budget

·   School climate, safety and discipline

·   Enhancement of parental involvement

·   Professional development

·   Title I

In addition, the council is charged with assisting the principal with the development of an annual School Improvement Plan that will identify areas of concern, establish explicit goals, state objectives, name persons charged with various responsibilities, and determine a timeline for measurable outcomes. In determining areas for improvement, the School Council takes guidance from the following sources:


  • Federal Mandates

  • MA State Standards

  • Natick Public Schools Strategic Plan And District Goals

  • The school’s core values and analysis of student learning
