Principal Advisory Council

Principal Advisory Councils bring schools and communities together to solve education problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and administrators, and bring parents into the decision-making process. Each council consists of a minimum of seven members: four parents/guardians, two certified teachers, and the principal. Members are trained to organize meetings and develop Principal Advisory Council bylaws, understand advisory status and authority, recognize legal issues such as open meetings and open records laws and confidentiality, make recommendations to increase student achievement, and create a continuous improvement plan. Councils provide an opportunity for local school decisions by representing the interests of the school community to the principal, who in turn conveys the information to Regional Superintendents, the Superintendent, and, if necessary, the Board of Education.

Notice for Parent/Guardian Nominees

The establishment of Principal Advisory School Councils is intended to help local boards of education by bringing parents and the community together with teachers and school administrators to create a better understanding of and mutual respect for each other’s concerns and share ideas for school improvement.
The law governing school councils was amended to provide that parents hold a majority on the council and that a parent must serve as the chairperson.
The Principal Advisory School Council, with a minimum membership of one principal, two teachers and four parents, two of whom shall be business persons, are organized to provide advice and recommendations to the school principal and where necessary to the area assistant superintendent, superintendent and local board of education. 
Parents of children in Arabia Mountain High School are invited to nominate the parent of a child or children enrolled in Arabia Mountain High School who would be interested in serving as a parent representative on the school council.
