Volunteer Opportunities

Mt. Pleasant invites all parents to participate in Parent Committees. The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a group of elected parents and staff who collaborate with MPHS Site Council, the Principal, and School to improve the effectiveness of our English-learners Program. ELAC meets once a month in the Parent Center located in room 804.

School Site Council’s primary function is in supporting and monitoring the progress of the school in fulfilling the school plan (Single Plan for Student Achievement) to ensure all students are achieving at a higher level.
