Collaborative School Committee

The Collaborative School Committee (CSC) brings together staff, family members, and community members to create and implement a plan to promote high achievement and a strong school culture.
Our Collaborative School Committee meetings are open to everyone. We welcome parents, staff, and community members to attend. CSC meetings are held the 2nd Monday of every week from 3:45-5:00 pm.

CSC Agendas:

CSC duties include:

  • Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) – Review the school’s achievement data, define goals and strategies to drive continued growth and improvement in school performance.
  • Staffing Allocations – Assist the principal by making recommendations concerning the use of the staffing allocations provided to the school by the Board of Education.
  • Annual School Budget – Review and approve the annual school budget according to district guidelines that supports the objectives of the UIP
    Calendar and/or Schedule – Making recommendations related to achieving school goals.
  • Academic Issues (including related policies and procedures) – Gather input from Stedman parents, teachers, and community members, discuss and make recommendations on academic issues as appropriate

The CSC will not:
