Citywide Education Councils

What is a Citywide Education Council?

Citywide Education Councils are education policy advisory bodies that represent the interests of high school students (Citywide Council on High Schools), English Language Learners (Citywide Council on English Language Learners), and special education students (Citywide Council on Special Education and the District 75 Council). These Councils are responsible for advising and commenting on educational policies that involve the student communities represented by the Councils, issuing an annual report on the effectiveness of the city district in providing services to the represented student communities, and holding at least one meeting per month open to the public during which the public may discuss issues facing the represented student communities.

How many Citywide Councils are there?

There are four Citywide Education Councils. These are the Citywide Council on High Schools (CCHS), the Citywide Council on English Language Learners (CCELL), the Citywide Council on Special Education (CCSE) and the District 75 Council (D75 Council).
