Horizons Council

Horizons Council consists of any and all members of the Horizons community who attend council meetings. All members of the Horizons community have the right and the privilege to be part of the decision-­making process at Council meetings. Council meetings are held once a month, with the exception of June, July, August, and December. These meetings are co-­chaired by the Principal and the Parent Co-­Chair. Council agendas are published prior to the meeting so that all will have advance knowledge of the topics that will be discussed. All decisions made at Council meetings are made by “concordance” or total agreement to support the outcome. If concordance is not reached by those present at the meeting, the Horizons Board will be responsible for making a decision using the same concordance method. Parents are asked to attend Council at least once per year; many parents attend regularly.
