Seeking to increase communication between the superintendent and school leaders while hearing input on various issues that affect the efficiency of school operations, the Principal Advisory Council was established during the 2013-2014 school year to provide support to the superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools.The group, which meets quarterly, helps drive the mission of the school district, to educate all students through academic excellence, preparing them for success in life, service and leadership, by serving the superintendent in an advisory capacity.
Consisting of principals from traditional, non-traditional and charter APS schools, the Council provides representation from all regions of the district. Each principal was nominated by his/her peers, with the final selection for the committee being made by the superintendent.
Council members will serve staggered terms of no more than one year, and at the end of a respective term, the council will elect new members at the May meeting prior to the start of the July 1 term of the new school year.
The district is optimistic that the council will help inform the work of the five-year strategic plan which sets the path for APS going forward, focusing on a consistent, aggressive and strategic structure of excellence for all schools.
