School Site Council


Collaborative Decision-Making

The School Site Council (SSC) is a decision-making body that represents all stakeholders of the school community: the principal, teachers, other school personnel, parents and students. Members are elected

Their group's primary responsibility is to identify common goals and assist the leadership team in establishing a plan to achieve the goals. The key to a successful SSC depends upon a good working relationship among all members of the Council. At SSC meetings, all members of the Council share their unique perspectives and knowledge of the school's needs, as they affect all students.

The School Site Council operates under the policy direction and with the approval of the Board of Trustees. The school leadership team and the SSC develop, monitor and revise the Single Plan for Student Achievement, and the SSC allocates resources to support the plan.

The School Site Council benefits the school by:
  • providing an open forum for discussing educational issues
  • providing an opportunity for interaction by parents, teachers and administrators
  • fostering the importance of decision-making at the site level
  • contributing to the Single Plan for Student Achievement
  • allocating resources to support the plan
  • assisting in defining educational needs and problems
If you are interested in serving on the School Site Council, please contact the principal.
