Policy Governance

On April 25, 2014 the Council voted unanimously to implement a policy governance model that utilizes the experience, gifts, and talents of each member for all discussions and decisions directing the actions of the Council.  Currently Council members and staff are working on drafting policies that reflect a Policy Governance model, as suggested by John Carver in his book Reinventing Your Board. The intention of the Council in making this decision is to actively engage all Council voices in thoughtful discussion and govern with one voice.


The Council is governed by the entire body of the Council with two officers, both of whom must be either self-advocates or parents.

  • CHAIR: Debra Parsons
  • VICE-CHAIR: Rebekah Forster-Casey
