The Principals Council

The Principals Council assists and advises the principal in the areas of educational objectives, major disciplinary decisions, the school program, faculty development, and in the general day-to-day operation of the school. The Principals Council meets bi-weekly, or more often as issues demand. While council decisions are reached in a collaborative manner, the principal is ultimately responsible for the decisions of the Principals Council.

The Faculty Representative serves as the liaison between the faculty and the administration; in addition, the Faculty Representative is the secretary for the open sessions of the Principals Council and submits minutes to the faculty and staff. Closed sessions of the Principals Council do not include the Faculty Representative and address issues related to confidentiality and faculty employment.
