It is the policy of the Stamford Board of Education (Board) to endorse and support parent, staff, student and community involvement in school governance. It is the intent of the Board that every school will have a School Governance Council that enables parents, school staff, students (when appropriate), and community to work together in facilitating quality educational plans that engender continuous improvement of student achievement. It is the responsibility of the Principal to develop and maintain effective organizational structures and processes for advisement in the school in conjunction with the School Governance Council.
