Frequently Asked Questions about SIT


Question: What is SIT?

Answer: SIT stands for School Improvement Team. School Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina law to develop school improvement plans. These plans set goals and allow team members to collaborate on ways to achieve the goals and needs of the school. The team is made of the principal, representatives of the assistant principals, instructional personnel, instructional support personnel, and teacher assistants assigned to the school building, and parents of children enrolled in the school. The representatives are elected by their respective groups (such as their departments.)

The General Assembly of North Carolina views parental involvement as a critical component of school success and positive student achievement. It is the intent of NC that parents, along with teachers, have a substantial role developing school improvement plans. [NC General Statutes 115C-105.27]. 

Question: When does the school Improvement Team meet and can I attend the meeting?

Answer: School Improvement Teams are considered a public body and are subject to open meeting laws. Staff, parents, and community members are always welcome to attend and observe the meetings. Meetings are held in the Conference Room from 2:40 pm - 3:15 pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month unless otherwise posted due to meeting cancellation, inclement weather, or holiday. The SIT meeting calendar can be found below.
