Who is on the Council?
The term of office for members is two years. Half the members are required to retire each year and this creates vacancies for the annual College Council elections. The next scheduled College Council elections at Craigieburn P-12 Complex will occur in March. There are three categories of membership:
More than one third of the total members must be from this category. Department of Education and Early Childhood (DEECD) employees can also be parent members at their child’s school/college. There are six parent members at Craigieburn P-12 Complex.
DEECD employee category:
Members of this category may make up no more than one third of the total membership of the College Council. The Principal of the College is one of these members, along with four other staff members.
Community member category:
Persons are co-opted by a decision of the Council because of their special skills, interests or experiences. DEECD employees are not eligible to be community members. We currently have two members in this category.
When does College Council Meet?
The College Council meets on the third Tuesday of each month between 6:00 pm and 8:00pm in the College’s administration building. Council members also attend sub-committee meetings.
Why is parent membership so important?
Parents elected to the Craigieburn P-12 Complex Council provide important viewpoints and may have valuable skills that can help shape the direction of the College. Parents need an interest in their child’s education and the desire to work in partnership with others to help shape the College’s future.
