The School Committees endorse the concept that participation by parents
with staff in the planning, programs and activities of the schools is
one of the essential components of a continuing effort to improve the
educational opportunities and experiences of all students. They
therefore encourage and expect the following:
A Parent Advisory Council or similar advisory group, to exist in each
school to work closely with the Principal and staff in efforts to
support and improve the school programs and activities.
Opportunities in all schools for parents to hear and see descriptions and explanations of the instructional programs.
Opportunities in all schools for all parents to visit individually the
schools and classrooms at times and with appropriate procedures
reasonable for both parents and staff.
A parent to serve as a member of all interviewing teams used in the
selection process for recommending persons to the Superintendent for
appointment as teachers and administrators.
