School Site Council

Our School Site Council (SSC) currently has five vacancies for PARENT members. We would be honored if you would consider serving in this position.


Our SSC meeting occur on Sept. 19th, Nov. 14th, Jan 23rd, and March 5th. The team consists of half parents (5), and half school staff: three classroom teachers, one classified member, and myself. Any member of the public may attend the meeting, but only the members can vote. Members serve a two-year term.


Each year we create the School Plan, including action steps for student achievement supported by "categorical" monies. In addition, SSC is tasked with reviewing and revising as necessary the Parent Involvement Policy and the School Safety Plan. The SSC members volunteer to serve on the Council.


The members of SSC are elected by their peers. Should you choose to run for this position, your name will be placed on a ballot and every McManus parent will be asked to vote during the week of Sept. 9th -13th.


Our first School Site Council meeting and training for this year is:

When: Wednesday, September 19th, 2019.

Time: 2:30 p.m.

Location: TBD


Please call our school office to let us know if you are interested in running for School Site Council or email Principal Chris Weaver cweaver@chicousd.org by Sept. 9th , 2019.


Thank you,

Chris Weaver, Principal
