  • It’s time to elect parent members on MCHS council

    In Kentucky, each school has a council composed of the principal, elected teachers, and elected parents who make many of the most important decisions about how their school will work. The council is a wonderful chance to learn about your school, work closely with teachers, and help make your school even more successful than it is now.
    The Marion County High School parent members of the council are elected by the parents, receive training, and serve one-year terms. It’s now time to choose your parent members for 2012-2013.
