School Improvement Team

School Improvement Teams (SIT) 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. Announcement of Meeting Times can be found on this section of our website.

You may communicate directly with an individual on the team or send a request to the entire committee. You may contact Ms. Ramsey or Mr. Rollins at 828-654-1780 for more information. 

School Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina law to develop school improvement plans.   The team is comprised of the principal of each school, 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 the PTA/PTO for parents).  

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 in developing school improvement plans.  [NC General Statutes 115C-105.27].   Buncombe County Schools encourage and endorse shared decision making as evident in our mission statement, Core Values and various policy directives.
