What is School Improvement Council?
An SIC is a broad-based body intended to advise the principal and school, and is focused on helping to achieve school improvement. State law requires that every K-12 public school in South Carolina convene an SIC. SICs members include parents, teachers, students and community member representatives, as well as the school's principal and other ex-officio members. SIC duties focus on the school improvement process:
• Provide input and feedback during the development of the school's improvement plan and annual updates
• Assist in implementation of school improvement programs and activities
• Monitor and report on progress toward improvement goals in the annual SIC Report to the Parents
• Provide other assistance as requested by the principal
