Community Education Councils, created by the New York State Legislature, are the local bodies responsible for ensuring that public school parents and the public have input in educational decision-making at the community school district level. There are 32 CECs in New York City, one for each community school district. They have jurisdiction over the public Pre-K programs, and elementary and middle schools in their district. Additionally, there are four Citywide Councils, specific to high schools, Special Education, English Language Learners and District 75 Special Education.  CECs operate independently of the New York City Department of Education ("DOE"), and act as liaisons between the public and DOE. All CEC members are volunteers, receiving no compensation for their work.
