School Improvement Advisory Committee

Our thanks and gratitude to all involved in this important work!


Purpose:

State law mandates that schools "report continuous planning and improvement to the public" and have a Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP). A large portion of this planning relies on setting goals in many areas of school business. These goals are ideally both academic and non-academic, are few in number (3 is ideal) and set an expectation for quality. The School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC) is the entity that works to set and achieve these goals and reports back to the public. In addition, the SIAC helps provide a forum for unique local initiatives. Each year, the Clarke Community School District seeks input from parents, students, board members, and staff as a collective action committee of stakeholders that help to "raise the bar" for our students.
