STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS28863 / H0351
This bill creates Community Councils at each public school in Idaho. Members consist of elected parents,
teachers and the principal. Community Councils will provide parents of students an opportunity to participate
in decision making at the school level. Councils will study school academic performance and funding, assist
in creating continuous improvement plans, and will serve in an advisory capacity to school and district
administrators and the school board.
There is no impact to the state general fund. School districts may experience minimal fiscal costs to run the
election for parent members of the council.
Representative Wendy Horman
