The Role of School Site Council

The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students (at the high school level) that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the site council are generally elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives and teachers elect teachers.  Site councils make decisions and advise the principal on the school budget and the academic or school improvement plan. After looking at the big picture of the school’s progress, the council and the principal create a plan for improvement. 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 members don't just represent their own interests, they have an obligation to make decisions that will best serve the whole school community. In fact, many site councils are specifically charged with finding ways to close gaps in achievement between groups of students. 

How to Get Involved

If you are interested in school policy or budgets, you might enjoy serving on our school’s site council. To find out more about what your school site council does, attend a meeting or talk to Mrs. Howard.
