About the School Improvement Council
The Haynes School Improvement Council is an advisory board to the principal, assisting in the identification of educational needs and goals of the school, review of the annual budget, and formulation of an annual school improvement plan. Membership is comprised of the principal, two staff members elected by the staff of Haynes, three parents elected by the parent community, and one or two non-parent community persons (if possible). The principal and one other member serve as co-chairs of the Council. Each member of the Council (with the exception of the principal) serves a two-year term. The Council meets at Haynes approximately once a month, but no less than quarterly. The first meeting of the Council takes place no later than forty days after the opening of each school year. Subsequent meetings are scheduled by the Council. Council meetings are open to the public. Elections for the parent representatives usually take place at Back to School Night. Nomination forms are available prior to that date, and each candidate is asked to write a brief statement about their interest in serving on the Council. These statements are then published for the parent community to use in electing Council members. Community members are, for the most part, recruited by Council members or HOP representatives. Any person who has an interest in the Sudbury schools (and Haynes in particular) but who is not currently a parent may serve as a community member. Business members and senior citizens have been excellent sources for community Council members. The superintendent, any member of the staff or parent community, or Council member may request the inclusion of an agenda item by notifying the principal no later than one week prior to the meeting. A copy of the agenda for each meeting will be posted in the Haynes School lobby four days prior to the meeting date. All meetings will be conducted in accordance with the prepared agenda; however, additional items may be added at the discretion of the co-chairs.
