Governing councils

Governing councils are bodies that govern a school or preschool. At South Australian Government schools and preschools (sites):

  • every school’s local community is represented by either a governing council or a school council 
  • preschools might have either a governing council or a management committee.

The site leader (school principal or preschool director) works together with the council or management committee to develop future directions for their site.
