"But if it is believed that these elementary schools will be better managed by...any other general authority of the government, than by the parents within each ward [district], it is a belief against all experience." --Thomas Jefferson

School Community Council Elections

Applications for School Community Councils (SCC) are taking place now.  The SCC's are the "rubber meets the road" for school involvement.  Some of the SCC decisions are:
  • Develop a school improvement plan
  • Develop a school Trust Land plan
  • Participate in the development of a school-level professional development plan and its implementation
  • Develop a child access routing plan
  • Advise the school administration on local school issues
  • Provide an opportunity for issues of concern in the community to be presented to the school administration.
  • Review school-wide U-PASS data (not individual data)
  • Develop a reading achievement plan
If you want to get involved, the SCC is the place to be.

I would be happy to post any information about any of the candidates for SCC positions on this blog.  I would like to get as much information out to everyone about these positions.  If you know of election information for each school, please let me know.

The only information I have so far is Highland Elementary's application deadline is this Friday, April 1, 2011.
