In order to ensure representation required by code as well as voice from each building, each building principal will attend (Associate Principals may be asked to attend in lieu of principal if unavailable or by topic).  Each building will identify 1 teacher and 1 parent to attend and secondary schools will identify 2 students per building to attend. The district will identify community members to invite.
