The School Site Council is a school based decision making organization whose central focus is supporting the best decisions for students. The School Site Council provides a means to improve communication and collaboration between the school and our community. The School Site Council is composed of members of our school community, with half of the group representing the professional school staff and half representing parents of Deerfield. All School Site Council meetings are open to the public and all members of our community may attend. At every meeting, an opportunity to speak to a topic not on the agenda is offered to anyone who is interested in addressing the School Site Council. The major responsibilities of this advisory forum include the following:
- Developing the Coordinated Summary of the School Improvement Plan
- Monitoring and evaluating the overall effectiveness of the school program
- Participating in program quality reviews to affirm program strengths and identify areas for growth and improvement at Deerfield.
