DSC 3335School Community Councils hold elections once a year to fill open seats.  Parents elect parent members and employees elect employee members. Elections may be held near the beginning of the school year or in the spring if they are completed before the last week of school.  Councils, in conjunction with the local school board, may decide on the timing of the annual election.  Elections should be held at a consistent time for at least four years.

The council seats should be roughly divided, so that ½ of the council roles off and have open seats up for election every year. Open positions, after the elections are held, may be appointed by the respective group. (Parent appoint parents, employees appoint employees).
