Site Council 2018-2019

The Ashland High School Site Council is a representative, school building-based committee established in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C. It provides an exciting opportunity for teachers, students, parents, and community members to join together to support the school principal in decision making. Each brings a different and mutually complementary perspective on school improvement goals and plans. School site council members don't just represent their own interests; they have an obligation to make decisions that will best serve the whole school community.
   In summary, the role of the Ashland High School Site Council is to:
  •   Develop an improvement plan for the high school that is presented to
    School Committee for approval

  •   Improve the student handbook

  •   Serve as an advisor to the principal
