A public consultation will be launched to gauge Highlanders’ thinking about the Scottish Government’s future plans for education.
Communities and parent councils will be consulted by Highland Council, which has pledged to work with the government and its counterparts across Scotland in an effort to influence the proposals for “education governance.”
Highland education chairman Alasdair Christie said: “Local democratic accountability is fundamental to our schools.
“Council members work closely and effectively with their schools and parent councils. They provide clear, strategic leadership to officers and have always demonstrated a high level of commitment to the quality of education provision for Highland communities.”
