THOREAU SCHOOL ADVISORY COUNCIL OPENING

PARENT OPENING FOR THOREAU SCHOOL ADVISORY COUNCIL

There is one parent opening on the Thoreau School Advisory Council (SAC). The Thoreau SAC is responsible for the stewardship of the school community. This council is comprised of both parents and teachers in addition to the school principal. Parents on the Council serve for two years. The main responsibilities of the SAC are to ensure the successful completion of the School Improvement Plan and to serve as an advisory board to the school principal. The SAC is another way for parents in the school community to have a voice with representatives of the school district—namely the school principal.

All interested parents should submit a 200 word statement to the two PTG Co-Presidents, Deb Antonangeli and Kathleen Dohoney, (deb.antonangeli@gmail.com and dohoneyk@gmail.com), which will be shared with the school community. All statements should be received by 8pm on Tuesday, September 12th. If there is more than one person interested in the position, the PTG will hold an election at Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 13th in accordance with the policy of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, in which the entire Thoreau parent community can vote. If an election occurs paper ballots will be located in the cafeteria.
