Leadership Council Structure for 2019-2020
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 12:30 PM

LC Structure for 2019-2020

Leadership Council will be changing their structure for the 2019-2020 school year to better serve and engage our school community. Looking forward to the 2019/2020 school year, the LC looks forward to working closely with the newly forming Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to fulfill our mission of supporting our community of learners and their families. Leadership Council will meet once a month on Thursdays from 5-6PM and the PTO will meet immediately afterwards from 6PM-7:30PM.

Leadership Council fulfills the requirement of a state mandated site council.  The Council will continue to consist of administration, teachers and parents who work together to support the Barton’s mission as an open magnet school.  The monthly meeting is a formal place where parents will receive information on the School Improvement Plan (SIP), schoolwide updates and grade-level specific information.  Parent representatives of the council will seek out parent’s concerns and communicate regularly with the school community about school based decisions.

Leadership Council seeks a group that reflects the student body.  The Council seeks representation across all of Barton’s cultural groups, range of skills, length of time at Barton and will need 1 or 2 parent representatives for each grade group.  The commitment is to attend monthly meetings from September to May, provide communication and outreach to other parents and promote Barton Open education philosophy. All are welcome to attend the meetings throughout the year.  If you are interested in joining, please contact Kate Rush by Friday June 28th at 612-237-5604 or
