School Improvement Council
In 1977 the Educational Finance Act mandated that all schools were to create a School Improvement Council. SIC meetings are held at Coosa on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
Coosa's School Improvement Council members include parents, faculty, community members, and ex-officio members that meet on a regular basis to create, implement and evaluate the five year school renewal plan (attached below).
Coosa's SIC Resources:
The purpose of the Coosa Elementary School Improvement Council is to:
- Assist in the development, implementation, and evaluation of the five-year School Improvement Plan (also known as the School Renewal Plan or Strategic Plan).
