The Education Reform Act of 1993 requires all public schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to have a School Advisory Council. The purpose of the School Advisory Council is to advise the Principal in:

  1. Identifying the educational needs of students,
  2. Reviewing the annual school budget, and
  3. Formulating a school improvement plan and educational goals.

The School Advisory Council focuses on implementing the School Goals for the current school year and on planning goals for the upcoming school year.

The school principal, three teachers, four parents, and two community representatives make up the membership of the School Advisory Council. The co-chairs of the School Advisory Council will be Christine Francis (principal) and a parent representative. SAC contact information is available here.

You may nominate yourself or another parent to be a member of the School Advisory Council.

 School Advisory Committee Nomination Form 2010

Note: The School Advisory Council meets one Wednesday each month from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. The meetings start in October and end in May.
