Parent council

In response to requests from parents, the Board and the school leadership team have decided to create a parent council. Parents, teachers and the school leadership team have crystalized their ideas and agreed in general to follow the parent council concept of Zurich’s state schools.

The aims of a parent council are to:
  • Organize the involvement of parents with the school
  • Simplify communication, and
  • Provide a basis for cooperation between parents, teachers, and the school leadership team

The parent council will be a key point of contact for parents and the school leadership team. It will coordinate and facilitate requests, ideas, assistance with organizing activities in and around the school, and general cooperation.

Naturally, matters affecting individual students or teachers will continue to be discussed directly with the teachers or the school leadership team. These are not within the competence of the parent council. When it comes to decisions on personnel and educational matters, just as in other schools, parents will not be involved.

The parent council will consist of one representative and one deputy per year. The representative and deputy will be elected annually at the parents’ evening by those present. The parent council will meet several times a year, and at least twice a year with the school leadership team. In future, the parent council will organize the election of representatives itself. The parent council will initially only be introduced in the primary school, as a test run. We would be glad to have the secondary years included in future.

You can read the rules of the parent council, which set out its rights and duties here.

We hope that there will be lively participation in these elections. The school leadership team is already looking forward to constructive cooperation with the parent council
