The Gates Intermediate School Council has elected and selected representatives from our parent body, the school staff and greater community to serve on the council, as mandated by the 1993 Education Reform Act. Elections are traditionally held in the Fall so that all staff and parents can have a full opportunity for representation. The current Gates Intermediate School Council includes two staff members, two parent members, one community member, one School Committee representative and the school principal. The School Council has specific responsibilities which need to be addressed in the school improvement plan. The areas identified include class size and impact on student achievement, transition programs to and from Gates school, enhancement of parent involvement, school climate, discipline and safety, professional development, extracurricular activities and the school budget.
