The School Site Council is an essential part of Laurel’s decision-making process to continue improving the academic success of our students. The School Site Council is composed of parents and teachers who participate in monthly meetings to review the School Improvement Plan and approve school budgets and expenditures. A monthly meeting will be held and the dates will be determined by the new council. The meetings will be one hour in length. There is a two year commitment to serve on the council. Being a member of the School Site Council is a great opportunity to learn more about school planning and our budget.
