Principal Advisory Councils bring parents, school employees, students, and community members together to create a better understanding of and mutual respect for each other's perspectives and share ideas for increasing student achievement and performance. 

 

What is the role of the Principal Advisory Council?

  • Act as a link between the school and the community
  • Encourage the engagement of parents and other stakeholders within the school community
  • Work to increase student achievement through transparent operations and shared best practices
  • Review the Continuous School Improvement Plan and monitor progress toward goals
  • Participate in the selection of the school principal

  • Dress Code- students must be dressed appropriately for school: no hats/hood worn, no tank tops or cut-off shirts, no spandex or short shorts
  • Student Lunch—please ensure that your student has a lunch account with funds added as school lunch is no longer free. An account can be created or updated here: https://www.schoolcafe.com/DEKALBCOUNTYSD
