America's future will be determined by the home and the school. The child becomes largely what he is taught; hence we must watch what we teach, and how we live. -- Jane Addams
During the 2014-2015 school year, I began chairing the site council, which is made up of an elected group of parents as well as unelected group of administrators, teachers, and staff. We meet on the first Wednesday of every month in the school lounge, as I attempt to facilitate a conversation about the direction of our school. Our group has used this description and this description to ground our work as well as initial surveys sent to teachers and site council members. My predecessor and I have compiled resources to inform members of our school community as well as schools in the process of starting their own site councils.
