 Parental Involvement Opportunities

 

At George Westinghouse College Prep, parents and family members play an essential role as partners in our students’ academic success. A variety of opportunities exist in 2018-2019 for involvement in the school; we look forward to your participation.

 

Local School Council (LSC): Local School Councils (LSCs) play a role in decision-making at the local school level. The primary responsibilities of LSCs include approving how school funds and resources are allocated, approving and monitoring the implementation of the annual school improvement plan, and hiring and evaluating the school's contract principal.

Meeting: The LSC meets every 1st Tuesday of the month.  All parents are invited to attend.

Location: Room 184

Contact: Rick Whitney, Chairperson, whitneygwcplsc@gmail.com

 

Parent Advisory Council (PAC): The PACs exist to provide parents/legal guardians, teachers/staff, and concerned community individuals with the opportunity to work with their principal in the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Title I Program. The PACs serve as an advisory group by providing input on amendments and future Title I programs. PACs jointly develop and approve a parent involvement policy, which includes the school-parent compact. PACs also provide and share NCLB Title I information updates received from the New Region PAC.

Meeting: The PAC meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month.  All parents are invited to attend.

Location: Room 184

Contact: Tiffany Junkins, Chairperson, tiffanymontley@gmail.com

 

Parent Teacher-Student Association (PTSA):The purpose of the George Westinghouse College Prep PTSA is to increase student achievement and performance by developing partnerships with parents, teachers, students, and the broader community.  The PTSA seeks to increase parental involvement and provide a vehicle for parent and teacher interaction through cooperative undertakings.  The PTSA is responsible for planning and organizing GWCP's large-scale fundraising gala and also helps with events including International Night and Field Day.
