School Governing Committees

English Learner Advisory Committee

The ELAC committee advises the school on how to improve the academic achievement of English Learner students and makes budgetary and other recommendations to the School Site Council. Each fall, new parent representatives are elected to our council, which includes parents, teachers, administrators and staff. Meetings are held monthly and visitors are welcome.

School Site Council

Each fall, new parent representatives are elected to the School Site Council (SSC). This committee is comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, and other staff members. This committee works with the administration on the school budget, the academic or school improvement plan, and is the official group that determines how we spend out Categorical Funds, including Federal Title 1 funds, in years that we have them. (In 2015, we are a Title 1 school.) In addition to academic planning, it is also responsible for making decisions about safety, improvements and discipline.  We urge you to attend these monthly meetings and gain a direct voice in the policies of Dahlia Heights. 

Elections & Quorums

Elections are held in September or October. Meetings are held monthly from November through May. These meetings are usually held during the afternoon.  Quorums are necessary to conduct business.
