Every school has a school Community Council consisting of the principal, elected teachers and a majority of elected parents. Effective school community councils and trust lands committees work to address the most important academic needs of the students. Some of the councils activities are required by law but most are simply expressions of the community-spirited individuals trying to do what the know must be done to help the students succeed.
School improvements is the responsibility of everyone, from students and parents to professionals and public officials. As we clarify roles, expectations and responsibilities we increase the likelihood of each contributing, significantly, to this most important enterprise. Our children's future acedemic success is at stake. School Community Councils are one way we can work together to make schools more successful. A council is an advisory body. ALl of its actions are overseen by the local school board. School Community Councils assist in the development of the following:
School Improvement Plan
Professional Development Plan
Reading Achievement Plan
Safe Routes to School Plan
The HMK School Community Council (SCC) meets at 3:30 on the first Monday of every month at HMK in conference room 2. The Council uses Roberts Rule of Order. All HMK SCC meetings are open to the public and we welcome anyone who is interested in finding out more about the council or in the becoming a member of the council to attend.
