School councils were established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C. This legislation specifies that the council is to consist of parents of students attending the school, teachers, and “other persons drawn from such groups or entities as municipal government, business and labor organizations, institutions of higher education, human service agencies or other interested groups, including those from school-age child care programs.” For schools serving grades nine to twelve, there should be at least one student on the council.
TECCA’s school council membership follows an open, multifaceted approach. As we evolve, we are looking for regular members who are committed to the school council schedule, scope, and purpose of our charge as a council. To become a member of the school council, contact us at 774-315-5123.
