School Sponsored Organizations
School Improvement Councils: The Education Reform Act of 1993 mandated that school councils be formed at every school.
A school council has a role in shaping the policies and programs of the schools. The school council is comprised of the principal,
teacher representatives, parent representatives, and a community representative, and at the secondary level, students.
These groups meet monthly to review school budgets, formulate school improvement plans, and advise the school principal.
