WHS Governance Council

Wilby School Governance Council

 Wilby’s School Governance Council consists of 7 Parents, 5 Teachers, 2 Community Members, 2 Students, 1 administrator and our Parent Liaison. Council members bring their unique experiences and beliefs to the table. The work that they do can influence the lives of children, even after they no longer serve on the council.

 What is a School Governance Council?

School Governance Councils are an opportunity for Connecticut schools to become centers of excellence that prepare all students for success. They represent the many interests of the families and staff that make up Wilby’s community. This is important because research has shown that:

 Partnerships among families, school and community members can make a powerful contribution to greater student success.

·     No matter what their income or background, students with involved families tend to have higher grades and test scores, better attendance, and higher rates of homework completion.


What does the School Governance Council Do?

The School Governance Council serves as an important role to the school administrator by:

 Bringing together parents, school staff, students and community leaders to work together to improve student achievement and

 Assisting the school administration in decisions impacting students’ education in areas such as:

·     Analyze data and school needs;

·     Review the school’s resources; and

·     Advise the principal in making programmatic and operational changes.
