About Springfield Elementary’s School Improvement Council
What is the School Improvement Council?
The School Improvement Council (SIC) serves as an advisory
committee to a school’s principal and faculty. Councils are mandated
by law to exist in every public school in South Carolina.
They play a key role in the education of our state’s children,
bringing together parents, educators and community stakeholders
to collaborate on the improvement of their local schools.
What do SICs do?
Councils work collaboratively with the school to develop and implement
a five-year school improvement plan (school renewal
plan), monitor and evaluate success in reaching the plan’s goals
and objectives, and write an annual report to parents about the
progress of the plan.
The Springfield School Improvement Council also offers practical
improvements on the daily operations of the school. Election
of parents to serve on the School Improvement Council will take
place in September.
