The SSC is made up of parents, staff, and administrators and works collaboratively to review the school plan or single plan for student achievement, establish a new budget, and work to provide counsel on matters of the school to the principal. The SSC meets at least six times a year and membership is on a rotating basis. Meetings are generally held on Mondays at 3:30pm. Applications for new members are open in the spring of each year. Members serve two year terms.
Do you have ideas about how to support and improve Horace Mann?
Are you interested in learning more about the school budget or safety plan?
Then WE NEED YOU for SSC!
Applications are currently being accepted for the Horace Mann School Site Council for the 2017-2018 school year.
The Horace Mann School Site Council (SSC) meets monthly on Monday afternoons (3:30pm) to discuss, plan, and approve programs for our school. This committee is made up of parents, community members, and school staff. Members are selected in accordance with the SSC By-laws and can participate in discussions directly related to our school plan, goals, and designated budget which in turn helps to maintain a quality instructional program available for continued student success. If you are interested, we would encourage you to speak to a current SSC member (see list below).
If interested, the application is due back to the front office by Friday, April 14, 2017.
