School Site Council

School Site Council


The James Marshall School Site Council is responsible for approving the school’s budget and School Development and Improvement plan each year.  The Council is comprised of five parents, the principal, three teachers and one staff member.  The Council meets once a month (on the second Tuesday of the month at 3:15pm).  Anyone is able to attend these meetings.

Site Council Members


Why is there a Site Council?

All elementary and middle schools have decided to participate in the School Based Coordinated Program (SBCP) using School Improvement Program funds; therefore, they are REQURIED to have School Site Councils.  (Some high schools have school site councils to administer other programs and funds.  The bylaws of these councils govern their activities.) Half of the Council members are school staff; the majority of this group must be classroom teachers.
