What is a School Site Council?

- Align the budget to the goals of the QIP.
- Hire a principal (If needed)

Here is all of the information for review.
Who Should be on the School Site Council?
How many members should the council contain?
The law leaves it up to each principal, "pursuant to a representative process approved by the superintendent and school committee," to define the size and composition of the council. It does, however, make three stipulations about membership.
Parents "shall have parity with professional personnel on the school councils." Regardless of the size of the council, the number of parent representatives must be equal to the number of teachers who serve on the council plus the principal.
"Not more than fifty percent of the council shall be non-school members." "Non-school members" are defined as members who are "other than parents, teachers, students and staff at the school."
The membership of school councils "should be broadly representative of the racial and ethnic diversity of the school building and community."
