• As a one-school district, Anchorage has adopted many of the school-based decision-making (SBDM) practices, which are performed by the Anchorage Board of Education. Therefore, the Anchorage Board of Education (henceforth: the School Board) has exempted the Anchorage Independent School District from the legal requirements of School-Based Decision Making. However, the School Board believes that the concepts of a School Council can be used to improve our decision-making process, through the inclusion of multiple stakeholders. Specifically, the Board seeks regular, orderly, and systematic input from parents and staff on school decisions. Its continuation and success depend on well-informed teamwork. The procedures that follow create an on-going Council of staff and parents who will seek and provide input to the Board in certain areas of school life.

    The Anchorage School Council is composed of the following representative members:

    • Principal (who serves as both a voting member and the chairperson of the Council)        
    • Certified Staff: Four (4)
      • One certified staff member serving primary grade levels (K-3)
      • One certified staff member serving intermediate grade levels (4-5)
      • One certified staff member serving middle school grade levels (6-8)
      • One certified staff member working in the field of Essential Arts or Special Education
    • Classified Staff: One (1)
    • Parents: Four (4) Parents (or legal guardians) with every attempt made to secure parent nominations that would ensure representation on the School Council in each of the following categories; a. One parent with a student(s) in a primary grade (K-3) b. One parent with a student(s) in an intermediate grade (4-5) c. One parent with a student(s) in middle school (6-8) d. One at-large parent member with a student enrolled at Anchorage School
    • Ex Officio (Non-voting): A member of the Anchorage Board of Education and a member of the APTA Executive Board
