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.
