School Advisory Council Election Process
The Carlisle School Advisory Council is a principal’s advisory group mandated by the State Education Reform Act of 1993. It is charged with supporting district goals through writing and implementing the School Improvement Plan, reviewing the budget, and providing general enhancement for the school community.
Members serve a three year term, and the meetings are held once a month at 3:15 p.m (on a Wednesday) in the Spalding Conference Room at the school September through June. The council requires equal representation of teachers / administrators and parents, and it must contain at least one community member. If you would be interested in serving on this council, please contact the PTO Executive Vice President.
Each spring the Elementary School Principal will consult with the PTO Executive Vice President to determine if there will be any openings on the School Advisory Council for the new school year.
The PTO Executive Vice President will post announcement of openings via the PTO Publicity Coordinator at in the PTO News, the PTO website, the Carlisle Schools Buzz and the Carlisle Mosquito.
All interested candidates will receive a confirmation email once their statement of interest has been received. All parent representatives who have served their three year term will also be required to submit a statement of interest.
The PTO will then distribute all statements to the CPS community via survey monkey to elect the parent and community representative to serve on the School Advisory Council for the new academic year.
Elected and any reelected candidates will be notified via email by the PTO Executive Vice President. Appointments will be publicized in the PTO News, the PTO website, and the Carlisle Schools Buzz.
This process will be repeated within the school year if the Elementary School Principal informs PTO that a Parent or Community Representative has left the Council before their term ended.
