Dear Parents, Students, and Staff, 

The Site Council is essentially a group of parents and staff working together to help insure the continued success of Hale School. Members are elected to serve two year terms and we work on a variety of tasks ranging from curriculum to the annual budget.  Most important in our success is understanding what the needs are of the community both within the school and in our surrounding neighborhood. Please always feel free to contact us and share your ideas, concerns, wishes, and comments as these serve as the building blocks for our discussions and road maps to our future. 

 Purpose
The purpose of the Council shall be to represent students, parents, staff and community interests in the decision-making process governing the affairs of Hale School.  Each Council member represents the entire Hale School community and works toward the common goals and mission as stated in the Hale School Improvement Plan.
 
Duties
To facilitate shared decisions through parent and staff representation to achieve high quality education for our children and a positive, supportive and responsive educational environment for students, staff and parents.
 
Council members will attend meetings during the school year in order to propose, discuss, make, publish and implement decisions and policies pertaining to the goals, directions, activities and pedagogical methods of Hale School.
 
Membership

Membership shall consist of six (6) Hale School employees, and six (6) parents/guardians with one (1) member from the community-neighborhood-at-large when possible.  It is a fundamental goal of Hale School that the Council membership  represent the diversity of the school and the community.  Every reasonable effort is made to achieve this goal.
