Community Education Councils (CECs) are made up of volunteer parents and community leaders in each school district while Citywide Education Councils focus on the interest of high school students, English language learners, and students with disabilities. There are 32 Community Education Councils and four citywide councils and all make important decisions regarding the education of New York City public school students.

Folks interested in running for an education council have from Jan. 9 to Feb. 13, with elections taking place April 21 to May 9.
