Site Council / Parent Leadership Team

All families are invited and encourage to attend LNCS Site Council meetings! They are a great place to get to know staff and other parents, discuss what's going on at our school, and shape the future of LNCS. Please see here for more information and consider dropping in on a meeting.

 

What is the Site Council?

The Site Council is a place where teachers, staff, parents, students and community members meet and work closely with the school's principals to: 

  • Advise the principals on decisions, policies, school goals and the school budget 
  • Communicate regularly with school community about decisions

 

Site Council Meeting Dates for 2016-2017; Time 5:30-6:30 p.m. (childcare is provided)

  • September 15 - Keewaydin
  • October 13 - Wenonah
  • November 10 - Keewaydin
  • December - no meeting

 

Successful Site Councils Share the Following Characteristics: 

  • Focus on Student Learning
  • Strong leadership that encourages everyone to participate. Members reflect on decisions and create school-wide ownership
  • Recognition that members need skills and data to make informed decisions
  • Respectful inclusion of all school groups
  • A system of committees that reflect the types of decisions to be made
  • A school-wide perspective, addressing issues of equity and the success of all students
