Utilization of parent input is offered through a number of forums at our school, including site and community booster organization groups to ensure a diverse representation. These groups allow for on-going dialogue to take place between school staff and parents. These groups include:
School Assessment and Review Team (SART): meets monthly during the school year to assess and review effectiveness of policies, procedures, programs and curriculum/textbook adoption, which are in place or proposed. In March, CUSD conducts the annual SART Survey. This survey solicits parent opinion on curricular, co-curricular, technology, and other issues facing the district. SART is the only body entitled to process these surveys; the compiled results are shared with the community.
School Site Council (SSC): meets quarterly with administrative, teacher, parent and student representatives to review and adopt the school site plan and grant final approval on all categorical funds.
English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC): made up of parents and staff members involved in the bilingual program. ELAC reviews all programs designed to support English Learners, including ELD, and tutors on a quarterly basis.
Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC): draws members from parents to represent our school at district level climate assessment/problem-solving meetings.
