School Improvement Council

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Southside's School Improvement Council (SIC).

Southside's School Improvement Council (SICs) serves our school principal and faculty in an advisory role, bringing together parents, educators, students and community stakeholders to collaborate on the improvement of our local school. SICs are mandated by law to exist in every public school in SC.

SIC is comprised of elected members, including parents of students in the school, teachers, and students, elected by their peers. Community members are appointed by the principal, who takes care to ensure that these people represent the greater school community, including non-parent taxpayers. The Principal always serves as an ex-officio member, and may also appoint others including PTSA representative, business partners, teacher of the year , as ex-officio members.

Non SIC members may serve on SIC committees.

Volunteers commit to serving approximately 2 hours per month for 9 mos of the year, of meeting and planning time ensures that the quality of the life of our school will continue to improve. Members serve on subcommittees reporting back to the council.

Why Should You Serve?

When parents are involved in their children's education, children do better in school. Parents have the knowledge and perception based on their own children's experiences and have access to the insight of other parents which can provide a positive influence on the development of their child's school.

Community members who feel ownership in a school often are the best advocates for children and the school. Citizens who do not have children in the school can make unique contributions to the SIC based on their varied experiences and knowledge.

What School Improvement Councils Do

SICs do not have any of the powers, responsibilities, and/ or duties of the local school board, nor do they organize any fund-raising.

Southside High School SIC meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Meetings are open to the public to come and listen and learn. Please make an appointment to attend by contacting the school office.
Elections and appointments to the committee are held each spring. Please contact the SIC Chair or Principal for more information.
