2020.2021 Community Council

Parents, Educators, and Community Members Working Together For All Salt Bears!​
The Anna Smith Elementary Community Council is an advisory board for the school made up of parents, school staff members, community members, and the principal. This group approves the school’s yearly School Improvement Plan, the Professional Development Plan, and the Walking/Safe Routing Plan. They are also responsible for the writing of the annual Trustlands Plan. This plan looks at the greatest needs of the school and then designs a plan using the funds allocated from the state to best meet those needs.

The plan for this school year was written in the spring of last year. Our school received about $20,000 this year from the state to implement our plan. Parents can directly influence the expenditure of the School Land Trust funds by serving on the school community council. If you would like further information about the Trust lands program you can go to Our council functions using simplified Parliamentary Procedure and Robert's Rules of Order.

Improving Parent Involvement on Councils
Every school has a school community council consisting of the principal, elected teachers and parents. Parent members must exceed the principal and staff by at least two. Charter schools may use the charter board if it h as a two parent member majority or elect a Charter Trust Lands Council with a two parent member majority. Parent input is important in the decisions made by councils.
School improvement 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. 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 and plans are overseen by the local school board or local charter board. The tools currently available on this page, along with others being developed, are intended to encourage parent involvement and to help school community councils work smoothly and effectively.
