School Council - Statement of Purpose

The School Council, in serving as representatives of our larger school community, seeks to enrich and enhance opportunities for teaching and learning at Johnson School that result in improved learning outcomes for students. We strive to improve the supports available to teachers, students and their families as we work together to better meet the needs of all our learners.

Responsibilities of the School Council

As outlined in the Education Reform Act of 1993, the Johnson School Council is comprised of representatives from the parent body, the school staff, and the community at large.  Elections are held to insure that all parents and staff have a full opportunity for representation.  The council has specific responsibilities that include, but are not limited to, examining the following topics:

  • Class size and impact on student achievement

  • School budget

  • School climate, safety and discipline

  • Enhancement of parental involvement

  • Professional development

  • Title I

In addition, the council is charged with the development of an annual School Improvement Plan that will identify areas of concern, establish explicit goals, state objectives, name persons charged with various responsibilities, and determine a timeline for measurable outcomes. In determining areas for improvement, the Johnson School Council incorporated indicators from the following resources:

  • Natick Public Schools' District Goals and Objectives

  • NCLB Goals and Indicators

  • MA State Standards

  • The Natick Public Schools' Common Expectations for Student Learning
