Local School Council
Please join us! The Bell School Local School Council (LSC) typically meets the third Wednesday of every month during the school year at 6:30 p.m. with some exceptions. Please confirm with the school calendar for call in and/or location information. The meetings are open to the public.
The Local School Council consists of 6 parents, 2 teachers, 1 staff member, 2 community members and the principal of the school. Council members are elected by members of their peer group on the second semester Report Card Pick-Up Day in April of every even-numbered year. Parent, community, teacher and staff representatives serve a two-year term beginning July 1 after each election and ending June 30, two years later.
The LSC encourages the participation of teachers, parents, students, and neighbors in the important decisions it makes. Meetings are generally open to audience participation, however, there is a designated time for public comment during each meeting. If you wish to address the LSC on a particular topic, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by noon of the day before the meeting. Each request should include your name and contact information along with the topic.
The LSC bulletin board across from the office has the latest information and meeting schedules, minutes of previous meetings, agenda for the upcoming meeting, contacts, the list of LSC committees, and other relevant documents. The same information is also available virtually in the PUBLIC LSC folder linked here. Please click here to view the current LSC by-laws.
