What is the SCC?
Our School Community Council (SCC) is a group of parents/guardians, employees, and administrators tasked with improving the educational programs and conditions within West High School. This includes, but is not limited to, serving in an advisory capacity and oversight to the administration and school board, developing the School LAND Trust Plan to guide the spending of LAND Trust funds disbursed annually, and developing a School Improvement Plan.
How Do I Get Involved with the SCC?
Everyone with a student enrolled at West is welcome and encouraged to join. Meetings are open, and held on the second Monday of the month -- September through May -- in the West High Media Center (library) from 5:30pm - 7:30pm. (See meeting schedule on the SCC page of the West High website for specific dates. Individual meeting dates may be changed with a majority vote.) The council is seated in September, with additions throughout the academic year if space is available. Please contact the Chair or Vice Chair if you have questions about joining the SCC as a voting member.
Rules of Order and Procedure
The West High SCC will have a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 15 parent/guardian members. The SCC strives to equitably represent the West High student and family community. A group of parents who feel that they are not adequately represented on the SCC may petition the council for an additional representative position. Employee members must always be at least 2 fewer than the number of parent/guardian members.
If the number of parents willing to serve exceeds the seats available, elections will be held in September, with public notice of the election (positions available and how to declare candidacy, as well as and when, where, how to vote) from the principal at least least 10 days before voting. Terms are two years long, starting the first day of school. At the last meeting of the school year, a Chair will be elected from the parent/guardian members, and a Vice Chair will be elected from the parent/guardian or employee members. Term is one year long, and is renewable.
Members’ attendance at meetings is important to our success. If a member misses 2 or more meetings in a row, they may be removed by a vote of the committee. We operate under the principles of Shared Governance, using informal parliamentary procedures. (Both can be found in the Shared Governance Guide found on the SCC page of the West High website.)
