In 1994, Minneapolis Public Schools put a program in place known as Site-Based Decision Making in an effort to move decision making closer to the students in order to improve student achievement. Each school in the district has a Site Council (comprised of both parents and school staff) which meets monthly to make decisions and discuss long-range program goals for the school. These councils are also charged with examining everything that might be standing in the way of student achievement.
Windom’s Site Council is a group of staff members, parents, and community members who work on the long-range vision and planning for the school. Everyone is welcome to attend the council’s meetings. The mission of the Windom’s Site Council is to provide an opportunity for representative school staff and community to work collaboratively providing direction that will enhance student achievement and on-going growth.
Site Council meetings will take place every third Tuesday from 4:30-5:30 in the Media Center (Please look at PTO meeting dates since, the PTO and Site Council meetings are held the same day).
Our Site Council consists of the following members:
Here is a list of site council participants for the 2013-2014 school year:

For more information on Site Council or if you are interested in serving, feel free to contact any of the current members or Principal Lucilla Yira. Historically, the parent group has been comprised of those who have expressed a desire to serve, but should there be more candidates than available positions in any given year, an election will be held.
