Bowman Site Council

Are you interested in playing a leadership role at Bowman? Are you available for one meeting a month? We are looking for one parent to serve on the Bowman School Based Site Council for a two-year term!  Meetings will be held once a month on a Friday morning at Bowman, most likely before the start of the school day.

This is a great opportunity to learn about Bowman, contribute to the Bowman community, and work with the school administration. If you are interested, please send us a short bio (maximum of 150 words) by Monday, September 19, 2023 at 10pm. For contested elections, an election will take place on Back-to-School Curriculum Night on Thursday, September 21.

As part of the Education Reform Act of 1993, Site-Based Councils were mandated as part of the Act’s decentralization of decision-making. The Site Council is composed of equal numbers of elected teachers and parents, together with the Principal and a community representative. The role of the Site Council is to advise the Principal. At Bowman, Site Council members meet once a month with Bowman teachers to plan ways to meet the diverse learning needs of students; establish a school climate of tolerance and respect for every individual; involve parents in the life of the school; impact safety and discipline; enhance extracurricular activities; and more.

If you have any questions about the Site Council or if you are interested in running for the open seat, please contact us at
