About School Advisory Council

  • The Nixon School Advisory Council is a representative committee composed of the Nixon staff members, parent representatives and one or more community members. The Council operates as an advisory body in accordance with and under the provisions of the Education Reform Act of 1993 (MGL Ch. 71 Section 59C).

    The School Council has three main purposes and responsibilities:

    1. Assist and advise the principal in identifying educational needs of students attending the school
    2. Assist the principal in reviewing the annual school budget
    3. Assist the principal in formulating the School Improvement Plan

    Six members, including the principal, two faculty/staff representatives elected by the faculty/staff, two parent representatives elected by the parent community through the Nixon PTO, appointed by the principal. All members (except the principal) serve two-year terms. The School Advisory Council is co-chaired by the building principal with membership, which includes parents, teachers and community members.

    The School Council meets approximately once a month, and at least once each quarter. The first meeting of the Council takes place no later than forty days after the opening of each school year.
