The Parent Council is a legally constituted body required by Colombian law to provide support and advice to the administration on school development and school improvement initiatives.
One representative from each grade is elected by the parent community during the first month of each school year during the Open House grade-level assemblies.
As the main responsibilities of the Parent Council (PC), they are key to the process of maintaining open and honest communications with the:
- Board of Directors
- Director’s Council
They should provide accurate follow-up information to members of the school community.
The PC also supports the arts, academic, and sports activities organized by the school and promotes these same activities with parents in order to help them contribute to student learning and growth.
Finally, the PC serves a key role to support community integration and effective communication within the school.
