The SLLIS Council helps parents support school-wide needs, enhance communication among board, administration, and parents, and share information across the School Advisory Councils. The Council consists of at least one parent member from each School Advisory Council, the President, and one board member. The group meets monthly.
Upon formation in December 2015, the group determined that each parent member of the SLLIS Council will lead a “Task Force” of parent volunteers for the following areas: Communications/Technology, Facilities, Development/Fundraising, and Enrollment. Each task force leader collaborates with an assigned employee, with responsibility for the related area of work, to establish priorities and develop strategies to accomplish the work. Notes from the general meetings are shared below:
School Advisory Councils
Each individual SLLIS school has its own School Advisory Council (SAC), facilitated by the respective heads of school. The councils make recommendations to school leadership, communicate concerns and mobilize the larger school community. The individual SAC at each school gives parents a voice.
Equal numbers of parents elected by parents, teachers elected by teachers and community or business leaders appointed by the Council comprise each SAC.
Elected members serve staggered two-year terms. Elections are held each year in January and newly elected members spend the spring semester shadowing current members.
