What is the School Improvement Team?
School Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina law to develop school improvement plans. The team is comprised of the principal of each school, representatives of the assistant principals, instructional personnel, instructional support personnel, and teacher assistants assigned to the school building, and parents of children enrolled in the school. The representatives are elected by their respective groups (such as the PTA/PTO for parents).

The General Assembly of North Carolina views parental involvement as a critical component of school success and positive student achievement. It is the intent of NC that parents, along with teachers, have a substantial role in developing school improvement plans.

When does the School Improvement Team meet and can I attend the meeting?
School Improvement Teams are considered a public body and are subject to open meeting laws. Staff, parents and community members are always welcome to attend and observe the meetings.

How do I communicate a suggestion for school improvement to the group?
You may communicate directly with an individual on the team or send a request to the entire committee.
