The School Site Council is governing/ advisory body at each school. The School Site Council is comprised of equal numbers of parents and staff. Parents on the School Site Council are accountable to the School Parent Council and are elected by the School Parent Council of the school.
The School Site Council reviews and approves school policy, including but not limited to:
