The council or board of a public school works with the school community to achieve the best outcomes for students.
The functions of the school council or board are covered by legislation. The elected members include parents, school staff, and students in secondary settings. Members of the wider community may also be invited to join and lend their skills and expertise.
The principal of the school is a member. Councils and boards make an important contribution towards supporting public education.
