Local School Council


2018 / 2019

The Hearst Local School Council (LSC) is a publicly-elected council of parents, teachers, school staff, and community representatives that oversees the school budget, planning and improvements, and the hiring and evaluation of the school principal.*

Key Council Responsibilities

1) School improvement planning: Developing and approving the school Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP)

2) School budget: Developing and approving the school’s budget and discretionary funds, including yearly approval of the Supplemental Grant of State Aid (SGSA) budget

3) Principal selection: Principals are hired for a 4-year contract, at the end of which they are either rehired or replaced by the LSC

4) Principal evaluation: Conducting performance evaluations of the Principal throughout the 4-year contract

In addition to these four primary responsibilities, our LSC is devoted to and involved in many other areas of school improvement. One way to get involved in the improvement of Hearst is to attend our monthly meetings and volunteer to be on a committee.
