Local School Improvement Councils
Local School Improvement Councils (LSIC) are required per W.Va.
Code § 18-5A-2. These councils exist at each public school in West
Virginia. Membership of the LSIC is comprised of teachers, service personnel,
bus drivers, parents, business and community representatives. An election
occurs annually for membership.
The LSIC is directly involved with the
operation of the local school in many ways. The LSIC reviews discipline data
and procedures yearly and submits written recommendations to the local school
board. They encourage involvement of the school community with the school
operation through regular LSIC meetings and collaboration. They support local
initiatives for school improvement by being directly involved with the strategic
planning and innovative ideas.
A direct link with the local school board occurs
through an annual meeting at which all school aspects inclusive of academics,
athletics, discipline, school climate, facilities, needs, improvement and
recommendations are presented and discussed.
