Pierce School Council

The Pierce School Council is an advisory board, consisting of parents, teachers, and the principal.  It helps identify students' educational needs and school goals. Specifically, the Council:

  • Makes recommendations to the Principal about the development, implementation, and assessment of the curriculum.
  • Assists in reviewing the annual school budget.
  • Helps formulate an annual school improvement plan to improve student performance and meet designated goals.
