The basic principle underlying the establishment of the School Site Council is that those individuals who are most affected by the operation of their school should have a major role in the decisions regarding how their school functions. The Willett School Site Council includes the principal, parent representatives elected by parents each fall, teacher representatives selected by teachers at the school, and school personnel.
Each year, the School Site council develops a school improvement plan, including a budget which is reflective and supportive of the plan. It is the council's responsibility to review the implementation of the plan, assess the effectiveness of the plan, and update the plan as needed.
The Site Council develops a school improvement plan, evaluates programs and makes decisions concerning important operating budgets at our site. The bylaws allow for an administrator, three teachers, one classified staff member and five parent representatives. Each is elected to a two-year term.
The members of the 2012-2013 Willett Site Council are:
Kim Foerster, Kindergarten Teacher
Leslie Whiteford, Sixth Grade Teacher
Heidi Perry, Principal
Michelle Agnew, Parent
Barbara Archer, Parent
Elizabeth Ewens, Parent
Mike Parker, Parent Alternate
Jennifer Selwyn, Parent
Christine Firpo, Chairperson
Feel free to speak to any members if you have questions or concerns for the Site Council, or call the office at 757-5460. Site Council meetings will be held the third Wednesdays of each month from 4:00-5:30 pm in the Staff Room. Everyone is welcome to attend and/or ask that concerns be placed on the agenda.
