WE NEED NOMINATIONS FOR THREE COUNCIL POSITIONS!
What is School Site Council?
The School Site Council is a decision making group of elected people consisting of school staff and parents who work together focusing on a school site plan. The school site plan describes our curriculum and the council sets goals for each school year. To support these goals, the council develops an annual budget based on state funding. Communication is maintained with the district regarding their guidelines, core curriculum, and budget planning. Discussion of the school site plan, the school’s annual programs, updates from other committees working at the school, and most effective use of funds are some of the major topics undertaken during the year. Decisions are made on a consensus basis with voting used as necessary to keep the council moving forward.
Responsibilities of a SSC Member
- Able to focus on the well-being of all the students at Meadow Heights.
- Able to work as a team with other council members through joint decision making.
- Able to attend regularly scheduled meetings (generally the 3rd or 4th Tuesday of the month).

What is the Time Commitment for a Member?
