School Community Council (SCC)

School Community Council Meetings


Hello Hawk Community! 

What is School Community Council (SCC)?

General information about Hawthorne’s School Community Council: 

Parents are invited to attend SCC meetings and to share their input on school goals with voting council members.

The public is welcome to attend, to bring concerns and issues, and to provide input into the meetings when appropriate.

The purpose and duties of SCC:

School community councils are responsible for preparing plans that are submitted to the school board for approval. They also should assist, as needed, and provide support for the implementation of the approved plans. School community council members are to represent the group that elected them to the school community council, as they make decisions and bring issues to the school community council for consideration.

They may form subcommittees or task forces to address an issue or project and bring it to the school community council for approval. They are a good resource to school and district administrators in bringing issues of concern forward and in providing feedback, upon request.

The school plans for which the school community council has responsibility for developing the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and School Land Trust Plan that includes how Land Trust monies will be used.  This year Hawthorne was awarded $53,186.48 to support the 2023-24 School Land Trust Plan.
