What is a School Improvement Team (SIT)?
Each school in the district has a School Improvement Team (SIT). A minimum of five parents serve on each school’s SIT. Parents are elected each spring by the school's PTA to fill vacant seats for the upcoming academic year.
The SIT develops, reviews and amends the School Improvement Plan; provides input into the end of each year’s status report; approves the capital and operational budget requests; solicits input from and hears the concerns of constituents about school programs; reviews the results of all relevant state and district administered surveys; provides counsel to the Board of Education on issues and policies; participates in the selection process when there is a vacancy for the position of principal at the school; advocates for schools; serves in an advisory capacity to the principal; and requests local position exchanges.
