School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC)
To meet the requirements of Iowa Code Section 280.12(2), the Independence School Board of Education appoints and charges a School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC) with making recommendations to the Board on an annual basis. Based on the committee members’ analysis of the needs assessment data, they will make recommendations to the Board about the following components:
- Major educational needs
- Student learning goals
- Curriculum, assessment and instruction
- Long range and annual goals that include, but are not limited to, the state indicators that address reading, mathematics, and science achievement
- Bullying and harassment prevention goals, programs, training, and other initiatives
- Any other issues which relate to school improvement
The SIAC makes decisions based on the best interest of students aligned with the district’s mission, vision, and beliefs. Our SIAC is a very valuable component of our school improvement process. We look to them for their input and advice on all things critical to our school.
If you have a school improvement issue you would like the committee to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact Jean Peterson. Her office phone number is 319-334-7400. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
