The Participation Council
The Participation Council is a group of democratically elected representatives of staff, students and parents who work with school leadership on matters concerning the management of the school.
By law, every school in the Netherlands has a Participation Council or Medezeggenschrapsraad (MR).
The Participation Council has the right of consent, the right of advice and the right of information on topics which are specified in Participation Act for Schools or Wet Medezeggenschap op Scholen (WMS). Topics which are discussed on a regular basis are school finances, school plan, safety regulations, care plan and other policies.
The Participation Council meets on a monthly basis 17.30 to 19.30 and the meetings are open to the public (unless confidential matters are being discussed). If you have any questions or concerns regarding school policies please contact the Participation Council representatives personally or send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
