School Council

The Mount Alexander College School Council has responsibility for the general educational policy of the school within Ministerial guidelines. The School Council comprises parents, teachers and community members and is tasked with making decisions related to curriculum, finance, student welfare, facilities and community engagement of the school.

Councillors are elected for a two-year period, with elections usually completed by the end of March for the period ahead. All parents and/or guardians of students enrolled at the school, and teachers working at the school are eligible to vote (if an election is required), and may serve on subcommittees of the council. The council meets on a monthly basis.

The current council will stand for the period March 2017 – March 2018.
