Welcome to the Community Education Council 31 Website!
On July 1, 2004, the NYC Community Education Councils and Citywide Councils began their historic new role in educational history. The Councils, known as CECs, have in essence replaced each district’s Community School Boards.
The CEC serves as an advisory board providing input and comment to the Chancellor and the Panel on Educational Policy regarding the needs of the district and DOE policy, in addition to policy implementation. We serve as advocates for the parents of the district, as well as the district itself to the Chancellor and PEP.
There are 32 CECs in NYC, one for each of the community school districts. There is also a Citywide Council on Special Education (CCSE),a Citywide District 75 Council (CD75C), a Citywide Council on High Schools (CCHS), and a Citywide Council on English Language Learners (CCELL).
Some of the core responsibilities of the CEC:
The Councils were designed to ensure that parents have a voice and are able to provide hands-on leadership and support for public schools. Parents control the majority of the seats on all of the councils; at least 9 out of 12 available seats are held by public school parents. Students and community members make up the remaining seats.
