Site Council

OVERVIEW

The Site Council was established in 2010 as part of the school redesign process.  It is made up students, faculty and community members.  The role of the Site Council is to provide PMHS with a leadership body to review, modify and make decisions regarding areas of high interest to have a positive impact on the educational process and school climate.  To learn more about the Site Council, click on the links below.
