What is Site Council?
The Lake Harriet Community School (LHCS) Site Council is the school’s site leadership team. As the advisory and planning body for LHCS, it is a forum for staff and parents to provide direction to the administration and to enhance student achievement. The purpose of the Site Council is to examine existing or proposed policies and procedures and make recommendations to ensure sustained student achievement.
The Site Council’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to; long-range planning, monitoring of the school budget, advocating for our school’s needs and regular assessment of the effectiveness of LHCS's shared-decision making.

Each member of the Site Council is placed on a subcommittee with the possible exception of the parent co-chair, who can act in a "floating" capacity and fills in where needed. Each subcommittee sets up a schedule that works for the group to complete its assigned tasks. Each subcommittee reports back on the status of their work at each meeting. In addition to the committee chairs, individuals can join the subcommittees on an ad-hoc basis.
