• A School Improvement Council (SIC) is an advisory body to the principal and school.  State law requires that every K-12 public school have an SIC that includes:

    • At least two parents elected by parents.
    • At least two teachers elected by teachers.
    • At least two students elected by students (required only for grade nine and above).
    • Community members who do not have children enrolled at the school, appointed by the principal.
    • The principal and other ex-officio members.

    SIC elections must be held by October 15th each year. Some schools hold elections at the beginning of the school year; others hold elections in late spring for the coming school year. Contact Ms. Gerald (fgerald@dorchester2.k12.sc.us) for specific details about SIC elections and community member appointments at your school. 

    Although you must be a member to vote on SIC matters, SIC meetings are open to all interested persons in the community. SICs also rely on volunteers from all parts of the community to carry out their activities. Contact Lisa Bailey-Peters (lbaileypeters@dorchester2.k12.sc.us) to see how you can help!
