The Early Childhood Center (ECC), Lower School, Middle School and Upper School each has a liaison committee. These committees are organized to serve as a forum for the exchange of ideas among parents, the faculty and the administration. The committees are comprised of parent representatives, administrators, faculty, the headmaster of each school, the school administrator and the school principal. Liaison meetings are held every six weeks in order to discuss parental concerns regarding the school, grade or class. Parents are encouraged to contact their liaison representatives with any issues. The liaison committee, together with the administration, review these concerns and, when appropriate, place them on the agenda for the next meeting. If a topic requires further attention or action, a committee of parents and administrators may be formed.
The president of Parents Council, in consultation with the administration, selects the liaison representatives for each grade. The ECC has three representatives per grade, the Lower School has four representatives per grade and the Middle School has three to four representatives per grade. In the Upper School, each grade has approximately six liaison members, representing a cross section of communities in which the students live. The liaison committee chairs and grade representatives serve two-year terms.
