The Parent-Faculty Council shall be composed of no more than 30 total members nor less than 9 members, 26 members are to be parents/guardians of the students attending AEP, 3 teachers, and the director. The term of the parent/guardian members will be for no longer than three school years or until replaced. A member must have children attending AEP for the period of his/her membership on the council. New members are elected in the fall by the parent body. Officers are elected by the council. Meetings are held at the request of the President usually once a month.
Parents may also participate in the numerous committees that are a part of the A. E. Phillips parent organization. Parent volunteers serve on various committees during the school year, working to continuously improve the school through identifying needs, determining courses of action, and completing projects and activities. Parent participation is crucial to the success of the school. This is especially true during the accreditation process conducted every five years by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
