School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC)

SIAC is a group appointed by the board and made up of members representing students, parents, teachers, administrators, and representatives from the local community.

The committee helps assess district needs and makes recommendations to the school board on major educational needs and district initiatives such as:

  • Major educational needs
  • Student learning goals
  • Long-range and annual improvement goals that include, but are not limited to, the state indicators that address reading, mathematics, and science achievement
  • Desired levels of student performance
  • Progress toward meeting goals
  • Harassment or bullying prevention goals, programs, training, and other initiatives
  • Character education into the educational program
