The School Site Council serves as the school community representative body for determining the focus of the school’s academic instructional program and all related categorical resources. The Legislative intent of the formation of School Site Councils is that individuals who are most affected by the operation of the school should have a major role in the decisions regarding how a school functions. Education should be a join effort of parents, teachers, administrators, and other school staff - those whose common goal is the success of all students.
