Participation Council (MR)

What is the MR?

By law, every school in the Netherlands is linked with a medezeggenschapsraad (MR). This is a participation council, where elected representatives of teachers, students and their parents consult the heads of school on policy matters.

Types of MR involvement

There are three ways in which the MR is involved in policy making at our school:

  • receiving information from the school management concerning school policy

  • giving advice about policies

  • giving approval for actions to take place
