What is the Local School Council (LSC)?  

Georgia law requires every school system to have a local school council operating in all elementary, middle, and high schools. The primary goal of the local school council is to bring schools and communities closer together, to make recommendations to solve educational problems, to help improve academic achievement, to provide support for teachers and administrators, and to involve parents in the school’s decision-making process. Indeed, we are a group of elected parents, school (students and parents), and faculty who are charged with responding to the needs and concerns of each of these groups.  Our local school council is an advisory group to the Principal, and we can formally raise issues with Clayton County Public Schools that, by practice and law, require an answer.   We are not a governing body, and we do not have decision-making authority, but we can influence decisions and policy through our recommendations.  We also do not raise funds, or have authority to say how funds are spent.  Our meetings are open for all interested parties to attend.

What is our Mission? 

Our primary mission is to support the principal, administrative staff, and teachers in their efforts to improve student academic performance.  We also focus on a range of aspects related to school operations to accomplish this mission, including, but not limited to: school board policies, school budget priorities, communications, facilities, transportation, curriculum and assessment, school-based and community services, textbooks and learning resources, and student discipline and attendance.

What do we do?  

The Morrow High School Council meets bi-monthly. The LSC meets to review current issues.  Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.   These meetings are open to the public.  We are in the process of setting priorities for this current year which to date include:  creating a central form of communication, allowing the committee to share updates, post agendas, calendar events, and promote Morrow High School, monitoring the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (S.P.L.O.S.T) in preparation for needed repairs and/or a new building, and broader engagement and continuity throughout the school community.

We want and need your input!  

Any parent, faculty member, or community resident is welcome to meet with us to share their ideas, concerns, and possible solutions. We are looking into different ways to make ourselves more accessible through this website and potentially a blog or discussion forum.
