Policy Council


Family involvement and leadership are critical to the success of our programs. For information on Policy Council as a Governing Body, see the documents below:

What is Policy Council? - A Resource for Families  (English and Spanish)


Policy Council representatives are elected by their center's/site's parent groups and they work with program administrators and the PSESD Board to make decisions that directly affect our children and families. Policy Council members participate in all aspects of program planning and development, and must approve all personnel and budget recommendations.

Policy Council members include the following:
  • Parents of currently enrolled children
  • Parents who have had a child in the program in previous years
  • Community agency representatives drawn from organizations that provide services, support, and/or resources to the families we serve

Policy Council meets monthly, November to November. Representatives are eligible for a childcare and mileage subsidy reimbursement for meetings they attend. A light breakfast and lunch are served at meetings. Center/site staff and all members of the community are welcome to attend and observe these meetings.

Policy Council also plays a key role in identifying the needs of low-income families with young children in our communities by creating a Community Needs Report. This information complements the data collected as part of the Community Assessment Report.
