Site councils are established at each school to collaborate with the principal on how to advance student learning through strong shared planning, communication and problem solving. The curriculum programs are primarily handled by the district, not individual schools.
Site Council also provides a forum for the district, principal, staff and parents to discuss concerns and events that affect student learning. Site Council’s job is to enhance student learning by supporting the school’s Continuous Improvement Plan and also work on updating school rules and other matters that affect the learning environment at Discovery.
Site Council is comprised of the principal, staff, parents and community representatives. An annual meeting calendar is established at the beginning of the year.
