School Council

Overview
MeetingThe School Council is a group of parents and staff who review the School Improvement Plan, curriculum, family engagement and other school wide initiatives. All MLK School parents/guardians are encouraged to attend our School Council meetings. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month alternating between 8 - 9 AM and 4 - 5PM in the large conference room. This is the place to be if you are interested in how issues that affect our school are decided and to be a part of that process.
