About the Council
The Lakeridge Community Council is a body of parents, teachers, and administrators who work together to improve student achievement. Together they identify academic needs, establish meaningful and measureable goals, and enact a plan to implement research based programs in reaching these goals. As stakeholders of the school they are committed to the mission of Lakeridge, “We will ensure high levels of learning for all students.”
Community Council members are elected by the body they represent. Elections are held each fall. Positions are for 2 years. Although the Lakeridge Community Council functions as a whole unit, it has four Committees, each comprised of a mix of parents and school personnel.
School Improvement Committee: Identifies the critical academic needs of the school and drafts a plan for addressing these needs. This committee also works on the action plan for special education needs.
Trustland Committee: Oversees the appropriate spending and timely reporting of efficacy with Land Trust money. This committee also focuses on the school action plan for social and citizenship skills.
Professional Development Committee: Ensures that professional development is focused on Critical Academic Needs and funding is provided to meet the needs for the plan. This committee is also in charge of assessment and data analysis.
Public Relations Committee: Improves communication between parents, the school, and the community.
