Community and Citywide Education Council Elections 2015-2017

Community or Citywide Education Councils help to shape educational policies and priorities in their districts. CCEC members are parent volunteers who provide hands-on leadership and support for their community's public schools. Participation on these councils is an important responsibility that every public school parent should join in! These elections occur every two years.  2015 gives you the opportunity to be more engaged in every aspect of your children’s school life. Go to  http://www.nycparentleaders.org/resources.html and run for 2015 NYC Education Councils.  #RaiseYourHandNYC for our kids!
