Policy Council members report at the monthly parent (committee) meetings regarding what is taking place with Policy Council.  Committee involvement is not limited to Policy Council. All parents are welcome to join a committee. Each Policy Council Member may serve up to 5 one-year terms.

The Board consists of members in the community, with backgrounds in business, school, finances, health, law and adult education.  They also have monthly meetings.
