O.C.G.A. § 20-2-85 - Establishment of school councils

(a) The General Assembly recognizes the need to improve communication and participation of parents
and the community in the management and operation of local schools. The General Assembly
believes that parent and community support is critical to the success of students and schools. The
intent of this article is to bring communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to
solve difficult education problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and
administrators, and bring parents into the school-based decision-making process. The establishment
of school councils is intended to help local boards of education develop and nurture participation,
bring parents and the community together with teachers and school administrators to create a better
understanding of and mutual respect for each other's concerns, and share ideas for school
improvement. School councils shall be reflective of the school community.

(b) The management and control of public schools shall be the responsibility of local boards of
education, and the school leader shall be the principal. School councils shall provide advice,
recommendations, and assistance and represent the community of parents and businesses. Each
member of the council, as a community representative, shall be accorded the respect and attention
deserving of such election.
