The Schulkonferenz is the highest advisory and decision-making body of the school and discusses and decides on all important matters of the school.
At primary schools the Schulkonferenz consists of
a. the headmaster,
b. four parent representatives,
c. four representatives of the whole conference (who can be teachers or educators)
d. and an external member, if one has been elected.
As soon as our school is expanded and has higher grades, two students of the 5th and 6th classes will have the right to speak in an advisory capacity. Four student representatives are added at
the secondary schools.
Some decisions must be taken by a two-thirds majority (e.g. school programme, admission criteria, scope of homework). For other decisions (e.g. student exchange, rules of conduct, start of
lessons) a simple majority is sufficient (School Act § 76 paragraphs 1 and 2).
It is important here that a majority can only be achieved with the voting members of the Schulkonferenz. It is therefore advisable to elect deputies in addition to the representatives, who can
replace the person elected if they are prevented from attending.
