What is School Site Council?Top of Page
- School Site Council is a school-community representative body comprised of the Principal, Teachers, Other School Personnel, Parents, Community Members, and Students. All schools that receive federal or state categorical funding are required to have a School Site Council to give input and help decide how to spend categorical funds.
- The School Site Council helps develop and approves the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), reviews specific goals and school improvements, monitors the implementation of the Single Plan and of student achievement, assesses strategies currently in place, works with other school-based Advisory groups, and encourages parent, family, and community involvement. The council also provides input into the use of bond monies given to the school for facility upgrades.
- Site Council elections are held each fall. Anyone who is interested in running should look for the School Site Council nomination link that is emailed to parents, students, and staff. Students can also nominate themselves or a classmate with the Activities Director. Parents can be nominated through the Parent Community Involvement Specialist. Finally, nominations are accepted at the first council meeting of each school year in September.
- All agendas and minutes are posted on this webpage for public information and anyone who wishes to come to a council meeting is welcome.
