When we meet:

The school site council meets at 5:30pm the 1st Tuesday of every month in room 215.

What the school site council does

The school site council is a group of teachersparents, classified employees, and students that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the site council are elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives, teachers elect teachers, and students elect students.

School site councils generally either make decisions on the school budget and the academic or school improvement plan. In addition to academic planning, site council is also responsible for making decisions about parent engagementsafety and discipline.

Over the course of a year, a typical council might consider the goals of the school or district and then work with the principal to evaluate the school’s progress toward those goals. In this evaluation, the council might consider school test scores, attendance and discipline records, parent surveys and input from students.

After looking at the big picture of the school’s progress, the council and the principal create a plan for improvement. This plan might involve a new academic program, staff member or parent outreach strategy. For example, one council might use funds to develop a new math program, while another might decide to hire a reading specialist. Another council might decide that hiring an additional teacher to reduce class sizes in a particular grade or a parent liaison to get more parents involved would be the best use of its money. Because school budgets are limited and many funds can only be spent in certain ways, there are always tough decisions to make.

School Site Council is always an open meeting - any student, parent, or community member may attend and have input in our meetings.  Please come by - we welcome your input!
