The Local School Council serves as the policy-making body for Murphy School. The Murphy LSC has remained an important vehicle for participatory democracy, allowing both teachers and parents the opportunity to make important decisions about how their children will be educated. It’s through these decisions that parents are connected with; educators to better align family and community engagement goals to student achievement; community members to help leverage community resources for the school; and other parents to share best practices and success stories.
LSC membership is a reflection of engaged and empowered parent, community, student, and educational leaders. It is through the LSC that Murphy parents are given a unique opportunity to have a voice in the decision-making table and engage in student-driven dialogue with community members, educators, students, and other parents.
