Principal Advisory Council

Principal Advisory Council

The Principal Advisory Council brings the school and community 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.

Under the Open Meetings Act (O.C.G.A. 50-14-1 - 50-14-6), dates for the AMHS Principal Advisory Council meetings will be posted when they are scheduled, and related documents will be publicly available. Meetings will be virtual, and a meeting link will be provided to the council.
