Community Education Council Parent Elections

New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña announced the launch of the 2015 Community Education Council elections and encouraged parents across the city to participate and have an impact on their children’s education. Parents interested in becoming members of a Community or Citywide Education Council should visit NYCParentLeaders.org for more information. They can start applying on February 11.

Parents interested in learning more about the application process and Education Council responsibilities should attend an Education Council Information Session. The first of a series of information sessions will take place at Tweed Courthouse on January 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The CECs work closely with the district superintendents, approve school-zoning lines, hold hearings on the capital plan, and provide input on instructional and policy issues. Each CEC has nine members who are parents of students currently in grades K-8 in district schools, and two Borough President appointees.

For more information, parents can visit http://nycparentleaders.org, a key resource for understanding the structure and roles of the Education Councils. Information available on this website includes eligibility guidelines, key dates, and frequently asked questions. 

Feel free to contact Sherri Donders at sdonders@ps58sscolumbia.org
