The Sisters Middle School Site Council will help develop and foster a culture of high academic expectations keeping all students on track for high school graduation.
Addressing the Whole Student
Site council members believe a culture of high academic expectations can be achieved while also fostering an environment that supports the emotional and social needs of the whole middle school student. Site council will support the middle school mission, "To provide high levels of learning and meaningful experiences for all students. " High academic expectations include academic progress and the self-directed learning/organizational skills needed for academic success. High levels of learning also include achievement in the arts, performing arts and music. Site council members support the values of the school community - safety, respect and responsibility.

Evaluating Student Performance
Academic progress is defined as students meeting or exceeding grade level learning objectives outlined by course descriptions and is measured by grades, performance on state assessments and by attendance. Academic progress is also monitored by each student's mastery of essential learning objectives through classroom-based assessments. Students with special learning needs work toward individualized goals based on their educational needs.
Site Council Activities
Site Council can contribute to academic improvement through a continuous focus on the Professional Learning Communities (PLC) model and on data (state assessment scores, parent surveys, attendance and grades), purposeful actions and collaborative communication with teachers and parents. Site Council members also serve to open communication lines between staff members and parents.
