Role of School Improvement Council
In South Carolina, a School Improvement Council is an advisory council to the principal and school on issues related to school improvement. By law, every K-12 public school in South Carolina must have an SIC that is made up of parent, teacher, student (grades 9-12), and community member representatives. The principal is an ex-officio member of every SIC. An SIC may create additional ex-officio positions such as the school’s Teacher of the Year, PTA or PTO President, past SIC Chair, or a representative of the school’s Title I Advisory Committee.
One focus of the council will be to promote parent involvement in the school and the community through information. We will periodically post links and/or information regarding school, community and state events, interesting articles and council updates. If you have questions or suggestions of postings for this site, please contact Jacqueline Pollard, SIC Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
