I believe many parents do not realize that under Mass. Education Reform they were given a large amount of say into what happens at their children’s school and can address things like:

Lunch duration – Recess length – Stop teachers from taking away recess for the entire class due to one disruptive student – Peer Grading being used to embarrass students – What needs to get repaired – forming and following a School Improvement Plan and school based budgeting.

I hope the information and commentary posted here gives parents a better understanding of:

What a School Site Council Is

What being a member means

How are members elected


Role of the Principal and staff on School Site Council

and many more things that has a parent you should know and make your school committee enact and follow.
