About CEC24

Community Education Council District 24

Community Education Council 24 is an education policy advisory body responsible

for reviewing and evaluating the district’s educational programs, approving zoning lines,

and holding public hearings on certain matters. 

We represent schools in Glendale, Ridgewood, Maspeth, Middle Village,

Corona, Elmhurst, Woodside, Liberty Park, Long Island City and Woodhaven.

The Role of CEC

The Community Education Council (CEC) is made up of nine volunteer parents from district 24 elected for two-year terms by the core PTA officers in each district one school. Two additional CEC members are appointed by the borough president and one is a non-voting high school senior. Elected parents must have a child in a district school (or in the last two years).


The CEC’s responsibilities are set by NY state law, and include:

•  Approving changes to zoning lines

• Reviewing the district’s education programs

•  Evaluating the district superintendent

• Assisting SLTs (student leadership team)

• Holding public forums

•  Hosting joint public hearings (with affected SLTs) on

any proposed significant changes in utilization (phase-out, grade configuration, re-siting, co-location) of any public district school

At each monthly calendar meeting, there is a report from the community district superintendent and an opportunity for the public to voice their concerns.



Each CEC member also serves as a liaison to a school in the district.
