School councils promote shared leadership among those who are closest to the students: parents, teachers and administrators of the local schools. The school council must set school policy to provide an environment to enhance student achievement and help the school reach its accountability goals. To meet this responsibility, councils should:
Collect, interpret and analyze information;
Set priorities, goals and targets;
Establish committees, review committee reports and consider their recommendations;
Work as a team;
Hold regularly scheduled meetings;
Conduct meetings in a democratic manner;
Get the required SBDM training;
Make student-based decisions;
Monitor policy and program implementation.
All meetings take place the 4th Monday of each month at 4:15, unless otherwise noted and are open to the public.
