SSC and Governance Team

SSC (School Site Council)

and

SGT (School Governance Team)

We are looking for interested people to serve on the SSC and the SGT for the 2010-2011 school year. Because we are a small school we combine these two important groups and hold one meeting each month. Being an active member of the SSC/SGT will keep you informed on important school issues and allow you to have a voice about budgetary decisions.

 

What is the School Site Council?

The School Site Council is an elected team made up of parents, staff and administration. As a body, the SSC is responsible for developing and monitoring the site plan to insure that the programs and budget are directed toward improving the achievement of all students. The SCT provides shared decision-making regarding a variety of school and community issues.
