Lahainaluna High School School Community Council

School Community Councils (SCCs) play a vital role in Hawai`i’s education system.
They are part of the leadership structure at each school and enable shared-decision
making among principals, teachers, school staff, parents, students and community
members to improve student achievement.

School Community Councils are:

• A group of people who are elected by their peers to advise the principal on
matters that affect student achievement and school improvement. Their primary
role is to participate in the process that ensures that the needs of all students are
addressed in the school’s Academic Plan.

• Forums for open discussion and problem-solving related to student achievement.
Research suggests that the collaborative process contributes to improved school
culture, classroom practices and student learning, and the development of a
strong professional community of educators.

• A means to involve the community in the discussion of educational issues and
help schools identify and respond to the educational needs of the community.
 

Benefits:

Benefits to members of a School Community Council include:

• Learning about educational research and factors that impact student
achievement;

• Being an important partner in the education system, whose views are valued;

• Contributing to the shared goal of improving student achievement;

• Having a vehicle through which to express opinions and share ideas; and

• Being informed about what is happening at the school.
