You have the right and the power to have a voice in your child’s education through the School Base Planning Team.
Each representative will have a vital role in the decisions made regarding the instructional program at our school.
This year you will be electing five parents to the team, two seated, voting representatives and two non-voting alternates.
School-Based Planning is the organizational structure for improving school productivity. The planning team, chaired by the principal, will assess student performance and school effectiveness. set improvement goals, and design instruction and other services in the context of those goals. Your role as a Parent Representative is critical to the success of the team. Your input is valuable and essential to the decision making process.

· Have a genuine interest in and heart for enriching our school community
If you feel that you would like to be a Parent Representative on one of the most important organizations in the school, please complete the attached form and return it to school with your child. You will be contacted by me and we will proceed in creating your biography for voting.
