What is Site Council?
Site Council is a group of students, parents, staff and community members whose purpose is to work together in order to better our school. Staffing, the school budget and community building are just a few of the topics that are often discussed. We also sponsor a series of family nights each year to teach families about Expeditionary Learning and important aspects of our school culture.
Site Council meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. If you have any topics you’d like to see addressed, you are encouraged to come and talk about it. All Open School parents, staff, and students, as well as community members, are welcome and encouraged to come. We'd love to see you there! Regular Site Council meetings begin with introductions of everyone present and include reports from the principal, staff, student government, and committees. Most meetings include one or two special topics and all meetings conclude by "going around the room" to give everyone a chance to speak, if they wish.
