A School Site Council is a group of teachers, parents, and classified employees that work with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the School Site Council are generally elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives and teachers elect teachers. In addition to academic planning, many site councils are also responsible for making decisions about parent engagement, safety and discipline.
If you're interested in school policy or budgets, you may enjoy serving on our School Site Council. To find out what your School Site Council does, attend a meeting or talk to the school principal. This is your chance to help make a difference in your child's school. If you would like to participate on the council, call your school secretary to find out how the selection process works. Be a part of making decisions that will best serve the Sutter Elementary community!
