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 advise the principal on the school budget and the academic or school improvement plan. School Site Council also helps in making 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 include three teachers, the principal, and one other staff members voted on by the staff. They work together with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. 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 meets in Room 14 according to the posted schedule.
