Serving on a Local School Council (LSC) provides a unique opportunity to become engaged in your school community and play an active role in making policy decisions affecting your school. LSCs are critical to ensuring positive student outcomes and a dynamic school environment.
LSCs are responsible for:
- Monitoring the school improvement plan— also known as their school’s CIWP.
- Monitoring the school's budget and expenditures.
- Evaluating their school’s principal annually, as well as selecting a new contract principal for their school or renewing the contract of their current principal.
Each LSCs set their own regular meeting schedules, which can be obtained directly from the school.
LSC members are elected every two years by parents, community members, and school staff. Members serve two-year terms, with the exception of high school student representatives, who serve one-year terms. The 2020 LSC elections will be held on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at Sayre Language Academy.
