One of the most important decision-making groups at Castlemont is our elected School Site Council. The Council is composed of five parent and community members and five representatives from the school’s staff. The Council reviews the school plan annually, establishes a budget, makes modifications as necessary, and assists in the evaluation of the school’s programs. Members are elected by the groups that they represent. Parent and community representatives and alternates are elected for a two-year term and may stand for re-election upon the completion of each term. If you are interested in running for the Council, please submit your name, with a short biography, to the front office by Thursday, May 5. The voting ballot will be sent home on Monday, May 9 and returned to the front office by Monday, May 16. The elected council member will be notified and his/her name posted in the front office on Friday, May 20.
There is currently one seat to be filled. The candidate receiving the most votes will serve on the Council as a parent/community representative. Write-in candidates receiving votes have an equal opportunity to be elected or serve as alternates on the Council. We meet 6 times throughout the year on Mondays at 3:00 p.m.
