The Center For School Study Councils: For our Members

Each of the four Study Councils meets monthly.  For two of those meetings, the four Study Councils come together for the “Joint Study Councils Meeting.”

Study Council staff creates a set of notes for each meeting.  In addition, the Joint Study Councils Meetings are video-recorded.  The videos and the meeting notes are available by request to members.
