School Community Council

Next Meeting
Date: January 12, 2023
Time: 4:30 PM
Place: WHMS Library Media Center
Agenda: See Below

West Hills Middle School has an active School Community Council which consists of parents, school staff and the principal. School employees and parent members are elected by secret ballot. Parents must have a student at WHMS in order to serve on the SCC. If you are interested in serving on the council, click here for the nomination form.

Four SCC meetings are held each year, usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays at 4:30 PM. The SCC participates in the development of our school improvement plan, the professional staff development plan, and approves the land trust budget each year. In addition, the SCC provides input for the school's child access routing plan which includes safe walking routes to school from each neighborhood within school boundaries. The SCC also partners with school administration in creating a safe and constructive internet environment for students.

The SCC is responsible for coordinating the annual fundraising activities of WHMS. The SCC provides a forum for community discussion of school related concerns and encourages citizens to express their views about educational issues. SCC information is available on this website. Upcoming meetings will be announced via email, newsletters, and posted on our website. We encourage any interested persons to join us. We value your input. Together we can make a stronger school.
