The Buckman Site Council provides leadership, direction and support to the school community to achieve school improvement that addresses both district and school priorities in accordance with Oregon Administration Regulations for the 21st Century School and Portland Public Schools Policies for Site Councils. Site Council members include our school principal along with four to five staff and four parent/guardian elected representatives. The scope of work of the Site Council includes:
- Assisting in developing, reviewing, measuring and monitoring the School Improvement Plan (SIP)
- Developing and coordinating plans for staff development needed to implement the School Improvement Plan, in consultation with principal and staff.
- Developing an effective, two-way communications plan with the school community around issues of school improvement and student achievement.
- Administering grants in aid of professional development to support SIP
The 2012-2013 school year:
