A Building Council is a structure for administrativedecision-making regarding issues impacting all schools in the building.
Council principals are equal partners in shaping the educational environment: administration, communication, culture. There are no “host” schools and all schools have equal rights and responsibilities in campus decisions.
Only DOE and Charter Principals/Director of Ops, D75, D79 (invited), and multi-site principals (delegated to AP when necessary)
Trusts each other; equal voices
Develops a compelling shared campus culture
Engages in unfiltered conflict around ideas and then resolves through consensus
Commits to decisions and plans of actions
Holds one another accountable for delivering against those plans
Speaks with “one voice” externally to staff and community about campus matters
“All of us together are stronger than any one of us; we create something together that was not possible alone.”
Daily advantage from colleague support
Shared expertise and resources
Team wisdom through collective experience
Professional learning community
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts
All school leaders on a campus should accept their share of campus-wide “lead” assignments(such as safety, athletics, extended use permits, campus liaison, etc.)
Provisions should be made for all principals to contribute to and sign off on ratings of shared or split-funded personnel(such as the custodian, librarian or lead safety officer)
The former ‘Campus Audit Template’ has been streamlined with the ‘Annual Facilities Survey’ into an online tool called the Principals Annual Space SurveyorPASS
Annual Calendar: Includes building council meeting dates decided upon for the school year (normally bi-monthly); BC’s should file meeting agendas and subsequent meeting minutes.
School Space Allocation: Includes designated room allocations by school and the documentation of any room swaps.
Shared Space Schedules: Includes daily scheduling of shared spaces (library, cafeteria, auditorium, gym, etc.) access and use of the building after hours, on weekends, and in the summer.
Shared Staffing/Funding: Includes any shared staff and their shared funding and supervisory agreements, i.e., campus plan for deployment of safety/security staff as well as documentation of any other initiatives that are split-funded. Charters cannot split fund.
“Building Survey Principal”: (principal with the highest student enrollment):
Refers to the School Leader who is determined by the PASS system to have editing rights to the PASS survey
Other principals will have viewing rights and will collaborate to complete and certify the survey
Meeting Minutes: Building Council and Shared Space Committee Minutes are required to be uploaded regularly into the PASS System.
Building Council meetings are required to occur at least 10x/per school year
Shared Space Committee (only for campuses with charter schools) meeting minutes have quarterly deadlines
For questions, contact the PASS Hotline at 718-752-5237 or email PASS@nycsca.org
Review committees established on each campus where one or more charter schools are co-located with one or more DOE schools or a D75 program
The best decisions are made closest to those implementing those decisions.
When campus principals hold the locus of control equitably, they are more motivated to reach consensus locally.
Executive Director of Campus Governance
Representatives from DSF and DIIT will participate in the meeting to address facilities needs and requirements such that all schools can provide effective instruction
