What is a School Improvement Council (SIC)?

Key Points:

  • The School Improvement Council (SIC) serves as an advisory committee to a school's principal and faculty.
  • Unlike PTAs and other voluntary school organizations, councils are mandated by law to exist in every public school in South Carolina.
  • SICs play a key role in the education of our state's children, bringing together parents, educators and community stakeholders to work collectively to improve their local schools.
  • More than 16,000 people serve on SICs in South Carolina.

Key Functions:

  • SICs work with the school to develop and implement a five-year school improvement plan (school renewal plan).
  • SICs monitor and evaluate success in reaching the plan's goals and objectives.
  • SICs write an annual report to parents about the progress of the plan.
  • SICs assist the principal in writing the narrative for the School Report Card.
  • SICs advise on the use of school incentive awards and provide assistance as requested by the principal.
