School Council

The ACA School Council is the organization that represents all stakeholders in ACA. All schools in Arizona are legally required to have a school council.

Its function is to field concerns from any stakeholder (student, parent, employee, administration, board, or community at large), and to resolve any conflict in a fair, balanced and democratic manner.

A copy of the ACA School Council bylaws can be obtained from the ACA website. The council meets usually on a monthly basis or as needed. All concerns, suggestions, or other matters should be submitted in writing to the President or the Secretary.
