Each school has a site-based team made up of elected representatives whose overall goal is to improve student achievement. School councils are responsible for planing and making decisions on issues such as staffing, scheduling, school climate and school budget allocations. Each elementary school council and the middle school council consist of three parents, the principal, three faculty members and one civil service employee or teaching assistant. The high school council includes an additional community/parent member, two additional faculty members and two students. Each stakeholder group elects their own members.


The PTA is responsible for parent elections. A plan governing the school councils was developed by a committee of representatives from the school district and community in 1993 in accordance with the New York State A New Compact for Learning. The first work of the planning committee was the development of a vision statement that captured the aspirations of the educational community and set the course for the future direction of the Pelham Public Schools.
