Southwest Leadership Council

Southwest is now a Community Partnership School (CPS), which means our governance is not limited to the district and principal, but also involves a Leadership Council comprised of admin, staff, students, and parents. Site-based management promotes student achievement through the collaborative process of shared decision-making.

 

Our Desired Outcome is the creation of an effective decision-making team to guide the policies of the school, and to advance the goals developed in the School Improvement Plan (SIP).
The Leadership Council provides a forum for all constituencies to become involved in the decision-making process. We are recruiting parents/family, staff, and students who will be strong, active, and supportive Leadership partners.

 

Leadership Council meetings are open to the public and meet on the second Monday of each month from 3:30 to 5:00, in the Southwest Media Center.  (If location changes, a sign will be posted.)

 

Our decision-making process involves the Leadership Council, Committees, Subcommittees and Task Forces. Most school policy changes will be decided at the sub/committee level and presented to Leadership Council for approval. The Council is the governing body, but many new initiatives will develop through sub/committee work.

 

We are actively recruiting a broader base of leadership for standing and special committees.

 

Parents, please contact Kirsten Mair, PTSO Chair, or SWPTSO@gmail.com
