What is the School Improvement Council?
The School Improvement Council is an advisory committee that is mandated by the General Assembly to exist in every public school in South Carolina. It allows parents, community members and educators to have an influential voice in the improvement of their local school. The School Improvement Council has the following responsibilities:
- Participate in the development of the five-year school improvement plan.
- Assist in the monitoring of the implementation of the plan and evaluation of results on achieving the goals.
- Assist in the writing of the annual updates.
- Advise on the spending of incentive funds if the school receives an award.
- Write the report to the parents about the progress of the school and district to achieve the goals and objectives of the strategic plan.
- Write the narrative to the School Report Card in conjunction with the principal.
- Participate in the revision of the school improvement plan if the school is rated unsatisfactory on the School Report Card.
