GMS Site Council

  • The Geneva Middle School Site Council usually meets once a month.

    The school Site Council plays an important role in decision-making at many schools. The school site council is a group of teachers and parents that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs. The members of our site council are not elected. Over the course of a year, we consider the goals of the school or district and then work with the principal to evaluate the school’s progress toward those goals.

    If you are interested in school policy or other matters, you might enjoy serving on our school’s site council. To find out more about what our school site council does, attend a meeting or talk to the school principal.  

    Examples of the questions school site councils ask:

    • What are the goals and priorities of our school?
    • What data do we have that shows how well we are achieving those goals?
    • Are we progressing toward our goals?
    • What supports could we put in place to help struggling students?
    • How will we fund those supports?
    • Do we have programs that are ineffective or unrelated to our goals?
    • How will we know if our new programs are effective?
