Við grunnskóla skal starfa skólaráð sem er samráðsvettvangur skólastjóra og skólasamfélags um skólahald. Skólaráð tekur þátt í stefnumörkun fyrir skólann og mótun sérkenna hans.


Við erum öll í þessu saman, enda er oft sagt að það þurfi heilt þorp til að ala upp barn. Í skólum borgarinnar er markvisst unnið að því að auka samráð við foreldra og styrkja aðkomu þeirra að skólastarfi. Foreldrafélag er starfrækt í öllum skólum Reykjavíkurborgar.
