Emory LaVista Parent Council seeking nominations for board members

WHO? Parents of students who attend one of the schools in the Druid Hills High School cluster - Avondale, Briar Vista, Fernbank, Laurel Ridge, and McLendon Elementary Schools, Druid Hills Middle School, and  Druid Hills High School.
WHAT?  The Emory LaVista Parent Council (ELPC), which includes all schools in the Lakeside and Druid Hills High School clusters, is seeking new board members to serve a two-year term beginning with the 2015-2016 school year. According to the ELPC charter, board members must come from the footprint of the Lakeside and Druid Hills High School clusters and must have children enrolled in one of those schools. At this time, only the board members from the Druid Hills High School cluster need to be replaced.
WHY? Become an advocate for our students. Through issue-oriented meetings and an involved constituency, the ELPC has established itself as an excellent source of information and a venue for communication concerning educational issues facing our children and our communities.
WHEN? Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, starting at 9:15am, with refreshments served at 8:45am. Meeting locations rotate to each of our school facilities.
