►Site Council Webpage
The Site Council includes representatives from all stakeholder groups: parents, teachers, support staff, and administration. No more than half of the council may be teachers, and no more than half can be parents at the school. Each stakeholder group meets on a regular basis to identify areas of concern and suggest agenda items for the full Site Council's consideration. In this way, the Site Council ensures that everyone involved in the school has a voice in how the school grows, develops and is governed. No group is able to dominate site council decision-making, because all action decisions are made by consensus.
The main objectives of the Site Council are as follows:

Co-Conveners: Emily Naylor and Becky Cacioppi
Meetings: As scheduled, see school calendar.
