Parents and community members in the East Union Community School District: Do you have an interest in providing input on major educational needs, long-range student learning goals, and much more? The School Improvement Advisory Committee, or SIAC, is made up of stakeholders like you representing our students, teachers, parents, community members with no children in school, administrators, and school board members. It serves as an advisory group that meets four times this year.
We have openings and would like to hear from you if you are interested in serving! Please contact the Superintendent's office at 641-347-5215 and express your interest.
To meet the requirements of Iowa Code Section 280.12(2), the East Union School Board of Education appoints and charges a School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC) with making recommendations to the Board on an annual basis. Based on the committee members’ analysis of the needs assessment data, they will make recommendations to the Board about the following components:
- Major educational needs
- Student learning goals
- Curriculum, assessment and instruction
- Long range and annual goals that include, but are not limited to, the state indicators that address reading, mathematics, and science achievement
- Bullying and harassment prevention goals, programs, training, and other initiatives
- Any other issues which relate to school improvement
The School Improvement Advisory Committee membership consists of representative teachers from across the district, representatives of the classified personnel, all building principals, the superintendent of schools, the director of curriculum, a guidance counselor, a school board member, parent members and student representatives. This committee’s task is to make decisions that impact students and create conditions that foster high academic achievement.
