School Governance Councils


School Governance Councils provide an opportunity for Connecticut schools to engage with families and community members in the essential dialogue about student achievement and preparing all students for success.

School Governance Councils were created by the state’s education reform law (Public Act 10-111) to enable parents, school staff, students (where appropriate) and community leaders to work together to improve student achievement. School Governance Councils serve in an advisory capacity and are charged with assisting the school administration in making programmatic and operational changes to improve the school’s achievement.
