School Council Guidebook
The Georgia School Council Guidebook was revised in 2015. The Data Analysis section has been updated with the new GeorgiaEducation.org reports. Information about the Georgia Assessment program and CCRPI has been included. The section on No Child Left Behind has been deleted. The School Council law has not changed since 2009; however, there have been minor updates to other laws referencing school councils.
The Guidebook is designed to fit into a standard 1-inch 3 ring binder. Download and print each file below for the complete GuideBook. Some sections have supplementary files. Print these supplementary files separately and insert them where indicated in the Word document.
Section 4: School Council Organization and Procedures (Word). This section includes model bylaws, agendas, minutes, and more.
