High Rock School Advisory Council
The School Advisory Council is a representative, school building-based committee comprising of the principal, assistant principal, parents, teachers and community members.  Each school in Massachusetts is mandated by state law to have a School Council.  School Councils assist principals by reviewing the school budget and developing the School Improvement Plan.  Requests for parent members will occur at the start of every school year.  Parents may contact the principal directly to share their interest.
