Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina law to develop school
improvement plans. The team is comprised of the principal of each
school, representatives of the assistant principals, instructional
personnel, instructional support personnel, and teacher assistants
assigned to the school building, and parents of children enrolled in the
school. The representatives are elected by their respective groups
(such as the PTA/PTO for parents).
The General Assembly of North
Carolina views parental involvement as a critical component of school
success and positive student achievement. It is the intent of NC that
parents, along with teachers, have a substantial role in developing
school improvement plans. [NC General Statutes 115C-105.27]. Buncombe
County Schools encourage and endorse shared decision making as evident
in our mission statement, Core Values and various policy directives.
