District seeking SIAC members
Solon Community School District parents and community members are invited to complete an application for membership on the School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC). SIAC is a board-appointed committee that shall include students, parents, teachers, administrators, and representatives from the local community. To the extent possible, committee membership shall have balanced representation of the following: race, gender, national origin, and disability. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, this committee was required to include equal representatives of both genders. The School Improvement Advisory Committee makes recommendations to the board based on the committee analysis of the needs assessment data related to student learning goals and other educational needs. The application deadline has been extended to Sept. 7 at 4 p.m. For more information or to apply, visit http://www.solon.k12.ia.us/district/board/csipsiac/ or contact Matt Townsley, director of instruction and technology at 319-624-3401, ext. 1352 or mtownsley@solon.k12.ia.us.
