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.
