TWES Council By-Laws (adopted 11/2/20) 

JCSS School Councils

O.C.G.A. 20-2-85-86

     The A+ Education reform Act of 2000 for the state of Georgia required that school councils be established at every public school.  These councils are policy-level advisory bodies to the Principal, Superintendent, and the local board of education.  This council may advise and make recommendations on any matter related to school and student improvement.  The purpose of school councils is to being communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to solve difficult education problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and administrators, and bring parents into the school-based decision-making process.

     The council must consist of the Principal, two certified teachers, and four parents or guardians of students (two of which must be businesspersons).  Members of the council must: 

  • Maintain a school-wide perspective on issues,

  • Regularly participate in council meetings,

  • Participate in information and training programs when needed,

  • Act as a link between the school council and the community,

  • Encourage the participation of parents and others within the school community, and

  • Work to improve student achievement and performance.
