As part of the Education Reform Act of 1993,school councils were mandated for each school across the Commonwealth. The Council offers a way for parents, teachers, and other members of the community to work together in an advisory capacity to the Principal in setting educational goals, identifying educational needs, reviewing the school building’s budget, and preparing the school improvement plan.

Join the School Council as a Parent Representative

It’s time to begin the nominations process for two open Parent Representative spots on the 2017-2018 Cabot School Council.  Parent members serve a two-year term.  The Cabot School Council meets eight times during the school year (generally around in around 5pm), and members are expected to attend 80 percent of the meetings. Subcommittees are sometimes formed to research and provide recommendations about a variety of school improvement issues.

If you would like to volunteer as a parent representative to the Cabot School Council, please …

  • Write a brief statement (200 words or less) that includes a biographical sketch (employment, family, etc), number of years you have been a Cabot parent, grade levels of your children, and why you wish to be a School Council representative. Please include your name, telephone number and email address.
  • Email the statement to cabotpto.volunteers@gmail.com or place it in the PTO mailbox in the office.  Please include a photo, if possible.  The statements will be included in email to Cabot parents/guardians.

The deadline for submission has been extended to Monday, May 29.

A ballot election is mandatory if more than two parents seek the positions.  In this case, candidate statements and a link to an online ballot form will be emailed to parents/guardians and posted to the Cabot PTO website.  Voting will be allowed for a period of 5 days.  The new School Council members will be announced to the School community at the end of the process.

If you have questions, you may contact any of the current School Council parent representatives.  They are listed on the School Council page of the PTO website.
