School Site Council

The School Site Council is composed of equal numbers of staff and parent representatives who serve a two-year term. The council meets eight times a year to oversee the implementation of various programs in the school, including state and federally-funded programs. The School Site Council is a governing body that is responsible for deciding how to spend categorical money to improve the instructional program here at Muirlands. Each school in the district receives a different amount of money, based on enrollment. The School Site Council members work together, to set goals, for improving student achievement at the school and allocating the funds to accomplish those goals.

Agendas for meetings are posted in our office and on our website at least 72 hours prior to the meeting and we post the minutes on our website. All parents and members of the public are welcome to attend.
