School Community Councils (SCC) enable shared decision-making among principals, teachers, school staff, parents, students and community members to improve student achievement.
School Community Councils are forums for exchanging ideas about how to improve student achievement among the school’s stakeholders: principals, teachers, school staff, parents, students, and community members.
School Community Councils are a major part of the overall leadership structure at each school. They are a group of people who are elected by their peers to advise the principal on specific matters that affect student achievement and school improvement. Their primary role is to participate in the process that ensures that the needs of all students are specifically addressed in the overall education plan for the school.
The Academic and Financial Plan is a document that highlights the goals for the school, the programs, and the available resources to reach these goals.
