The board considers input critical to the effective operation of the individual schools and the school system. The board welcomes the opportunity to receive from the public suggestions and concerns which will assist the board in achieving its desired objectives. Standing citizen advisory councils, organized on the basis of one per school, are designed to provide the board continuing input on school operations and procedures. These advisory councils shall be general in purpose and shall be in addition to any other specific advisory councils or committees whether created under mandate or by voluntary means.

A. DUTIES

Each advisory council shall have the following duties:

1. to act as a support group for the school and the community in matters pertaining to the development of excellence in the schools;

2. to assist the principal and school personnel by helping interpret school matters to the community and bringing community concerns to the attention of the principal;

3. to submit draft copies of the minutes of each meeting to the superintendent within 10 days following the meeting;

4. to make an annual written summary report of its activities to the board, emphasizing efforts, ideas and concerns related to program and facility improvement;

5. to receive periodic reports from the principal concerning school programs, activities and the financial status of fund raising activities and expenditures;

6. comply with the open meetings law, including notice of meetings;

7. to provide such documentation as may be necessary to the superintendent and board to support any charges, findings or allegations of misconduct, oversight or abuses of laws and

SPMS is seeking out parents who would like to serve on our school NCStar Team formally known as School Improvement Team.

School Improvement Planning is more than a plan, it is a framework for change. The plan, itself, is simply a map that identifies the school’s destination and requires both decision-making and action from a variety of stakeholders to reach that destination in the most direct route. As Dr. Sam Redding wrote in The Mega System Handbook, “high-functioning schools and schools cited for their effectiveness do the right things, do them continuously, and always look for ways to improve. Schools that fail with comprehensive school reform do so not for lack of resources, other than time, but for want of determination and internal discipline.”

NCStar is a web-based tool that guides a district or school team in charting its improvement and managing the continuous improvement process. NCStar builds accountability as well as helps schools track their improvement plans. NCStar is premised on the firm belief that district and school improvement is best accomplished when directed by the people, working in teams, closest to the students.

NCStar requires a "culture of candor" in which district and school personnel talk openly and honestly about their professional practices that contribute to student learning.

Since school improvement is such a unique process for each school, NCStar contains over 100 research-based effective practices (indicators) and allows schools flexibility to personalize their school improvement plans to meet their distinct needs.

NCStar brings all stakeholders into the continuous improvement process by allowing "view-only" capability and "real-time" transparency of the school improvement plan process to all staff, district personnel, school board members, and parents.

This team will meet twice a month throughout the school year. If you are interested please contact Mr. Nicholas Baffaro, Assistant Principal, via email at nicholas.baffaro@robeson.k12.nc.us.

Again, thank you for your continued support and we look forward to hearing from you.
