The purpose of our school council is to have Parents, students, school board officials, teachers and principals that work together to enhance student learning. It is a conduit for communication between interested parties, allowing parents to be involved in decisions that affect our children’s education at the local school level.
All parents and guardians of students attending New Sarepta Community High School, secondary students, teachers and principal of N.S.C.H.S, and school board trustee can be part of the School Council.
