School Coordinating Council

In Accordance with our Charter Petition:
School Coordinating Council (Advisory) ACRMA5 has a School Coordinating Council of 10 to 20 members consisting of the principal, parent representatives, teachers, classified staff, the student body president, and local community members. The School Coordinating Council meets monthly to provide suggestions and recommendations, advising the principal on day-to-day operations and issues including, but not limited to budgeting, curriculum, school policies, school/community participation, and the general direction of the Charter School. The coordinating council meets at the school’s site. If requested by the principal and if the subjects to be discussed warrant it, members of the ACRMA5 Board attend Student Advisory Council meetings.
Our School Coordinating Council Meetings occur the 3rd Monday of every month at 8:00 a.m.
All stakeholders are welcome to attend and provide input and feedback for items being discussed.
All community stakeholders are welcome.
Parent/Community Town Hall Meetings Approximately once a month, ACRMA5 holds meetings in a Town Hall Meeting format that all parents, community and staff members are welcome to attend along with the ACRMA5 Board. Topics for discussion or presentation include schoolwide topics of interest related to achieving the goals of the Charter School and its students. Meetings are generally attended by the principal and administrative staff of ACRMA5 and members of the ACRMA5 Board of Directors.
