- The improvement of the school’s instructional program;
- The development and coordination of plans for the implementation of programs under this chapter at the school;
- The administration of grants-in-aid for the professional development of teachers and classified district employees..."
- A Site Council "shall be composed of teachers, parents, classified employees and principal or the principal’s designee, as follows:
- Not more than half the members shall be teachers;
- Not more than half the members shall be parents;
- At least one member shall be a classified employee; and
- One member shall be the principal or the principal’s designee."
- In addition other members may be "...including but not limited to local school committee members, business leaders, students and members of the community at large."
- Members of a site council "shall be selected as follows:
- Teachers shall be licensed teachers elected by licensed teachers at the school site;
- Classified employees shall be elected by classified employees at the school site;
- Parents shall be selected by parents of students attending the school;

School Improvement Plan (SIP)
To fulfill the mandate of the state legislature, the Beaumont MS Site Council has developed and will approve a School Improvement Plan (SIP). The Plan will:
- delineate both long- and short-term school improvement objectives;
- include specific actions, specific personnel, and measurable outcomes.
The Site Council will:
- solicit input regarding the SIP from staff, parents, administration, students, and community members;
- closely monitor progress toward attainment of the objectives during the school year;
- review and revise as necessary the SIP each spring for the following school year.
In addition, the Site Council:
- may review the allocation of BMS resources including the operating budget, and grants or allocations from the Beaumont Foundation, PTA, Booster Club, and other sources;
- will receive regular reports from the Curriculum Planning Team;
- will provide advice to the principal regarding the distribution of FTE. Whenever there is a change in the allocation of FTE to Beaumont, the principal will alert the Site Council. After Site Council discussion, the principal will make the final decision.
