School Site Council
The School Site Council plays an important role in decision-making at Martin Elementary School. The School Site Council makes decisions and advises the principal on the school budget and the academic plan, or Single Plan for Student Achievement. School Site Council also helps in making policy decisions about parent engagement, safety and discipline. The School Site Council is composed of five parents and five staff members. The staff members on School Site Council includes three teachers, the principal, and one other staff member. All members of the SSC work together to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets, and align spending of site funds with goals and priorities, in order to increase student achievement and well-being. The members of the site council are elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives and teachers elect teachers. School Site Council meeting dates and times are always posted ahead of time, but in general, they take place one Friday per month in Room 14.
