  4. Communicate with our community by asking questions about initiatives and explaining the answers to community members
  5. Ask for community feedback on issues that are being considered by the board.
  6. Provide a pulse for community opinion on different issues
  7. Interpret achievement data on progress toward district goals
  8. Review the Affirmative Action goals for the district and help to assure equity for students and employees

MEMBERSHIP

As much as possible, membership on the School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC) is a cross-section of the community and reflect its diversity in terms of socio-economic status, racial and ethnic groups, gender, disability status, age, local businesses, and agencies. Committee members also represent parents, teachers and administrators from each school building in the district. The Middle School and High School buildings are also represented by students. All committee members are approved annually by the school board.

PROCESS FOR MEMBERship

Recommendations for new members are taken annually. Recommended members are contacted to ask them to serve on the committee.  If you are interested in serving on the committee, please contact Paula Wright, Superintendent (641) 774-5967.

NON-MEMBER PARTICIPATION

SIAC meetings are open to any community members to attend as observers. As a board appointed committee, anyone present at a meeting is an observer and not a participant. Any communication about meeting topics by observers can be arranged with an administrator or brought up during the public comment time of regular school board meetings.
