Edison K8 School
60 Glenmont Road, Brighton, MA 02135
The first half of the meeting (5:00-6:00 pm) will be to nominate and elect new parent representatives to the school's site council, and leadership positions for the school's parent council.
The second half of the meeting (6:00-7:00 pm) will be our first meeting of the year for the School Parent Council. All parents of Edison students are automatically members of the parent council and encouraged to attend.
Please consider getting involved with your child's school by standing for election either to the site council or leadership for the parent council!
Site Council Representatives
Every fall we hold elections for parent representatives to the school's site council. The site council includes teachers, parents, and the principal; it helps to guide Edison school policies. The site council meets monthly on the 4th Friday at 7:00-8:15 am.
There are a total of seven parent representatives, each of whom serves a staggered, two-year term -- hence there are at least 3-4 positions up for election each year. Other interested parents can be elected as "alternate" representatives to the site council.
Parent Council Leadership
Every fall we also hold elections for parent leadership positions in the school's parent council. The parent council is the main organization for parents to meeting together and discuss issues of common concern. It meets monthly, usually on the 2nd Wednesday at 5:30-7:00 pm.
The parent leadership positions are: two co-chairs; two co-treasurers; and one secretary. Parents elected to the leadership are generally expected to attend the site council as "alternate" members, substituting for site council representatives when they are absent.
