Today’s Agenda

Introduce yourself to the group: personally and professionally

  • What is the mission of your school and what achievement levers are valued?
building council defined
Building Council: Defined

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.

who sits on building councils

Only DOE and Charter Principals/Director of Ops, D75, D79 (invited), and multi-site principals (delegated to AP when necessary)

  • AP’s can be brought in as observers, presenters or to take minutes, etc.
  • NOTE: Parents, UFT reps, CBO’s sit on the SLT ; custodial and safety staff are present only when principals agree they are needed for an agenda item.
Who sits on Building Councils?
what does a great council look like
What Does a Great Council look Like?

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

campus collaboration benefits all
Campus Collaboration Benefits All

“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

building council norms

Calendar of annual meetings (bi-weekly typical)

  • Building Survey Principal (Survey, Minutes)
  • Meeting facilitator (e.g., rotations)
  • Distribution of tasks (based on expertise)
Building Council Norms
distribution of campus assignments shared campus personnel
Distribution of Campus Assignments / Shared Campus Personnel

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)

about the pass survey

The former ‘Campus Audit Template’ has been streamlined with the ‘Annual Facilities Survey’ into an online tool called the Principals Annual Space SurveyorPASS

  • The survey is to be completed collaboratively with all campus principals at the beginning of each school year.
  • Upon completion, the survey should be signed off by all Building Council members, printed, and kept on file for 5 years.
About the PASS Survey
pass survey components
PASS Survey Components

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.

pass survey procedures
PASS Survey Procedures

“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

Assistance with PASS Survey
shared space committees

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

  • Comprised of a principal, teacher, parent from each co-located school; AP may serve a delegate for D-75
  • Purpose is to review the implementation of the Campus Space Plan or Building Utilization Plan with SSC members; the review makes the space allocation and shared space decisions transparent. Principals retain the sole right to make the collaborative space sharing and scheduling decisions on the Building Council, but they review these results with the SSC.
  • Meet at least 4 times per year & submit meeting minutes into PASS
Shared Space Committees
council arbitration assumptions
Council Arbitration Assumptions

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.

dispute resolution process1
Dispute Resolution Process


Building Council

Network Leader

Executive Director of Campus Governance

  • Building Council: Principals attempt to reach consensus in BC meeting; request CFN support individually or collectively.
  • CFN Involvement: Network Leader facilitates 1-2 meetings; E.D. of Campus Governance may coach. If conflicts are not resolved, calls E.D. for arbitration.
  • ED Arbitration: will occur thru the E.D. of Campus Governance with the assistance of relevant DOE managers. Superintendents will write letter to file to support the adverse PPR rating.
placement meeting

Scheduled 20 school days post PEP (two weeks post M&G)

  • The Borough Director of Space Planning will schedule and facilitate the Placement Meeting with all Principals to allocate rooms and divide the excess space equitably in the building.
    • Space allocation is based on the proportion of the total students in the building enrolled by each school and/or program, the instructional and programmatic needs of the co-located schools, and the physical location of the space within the building.
  • For all charter co-locations, the space allocations will align to the approved Building Utilization Plan.
Placement Meeting
placement meeting1

Representatives from DSF and DIIT will participate in the meeting to address facilities needs and requirements such that all schools can provide effective instruction

  • All follow-ups will be memorialized through the Facilities Site Survey filled out by the Borough Director of Space Planning.
  • Following the placement meeting it is expected that the new school can arrange through the building council, appropriate access to the building.
