Description

Community Education Councils (CECs) are education policy advisory bodies responsible for, among other things, reviewing and evaluating their district’s educational programs, approving zoning lines, and holding public hearings on certain matters. Each Community Education Council (CEC) consists of 11 voting members who provide hands-on leadership and support for their district's public schools. Nine of the members are parents of children in pre-K through 8th grade, attending a district school or a pre-K program offered by a district school. These members are elected by parents of children attending these schools and programs. Learn more about the CEC election at
