School Improvement Team

  • What is the School Improvement Team?

    School Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina law to develop school improvement plans. The ECGE School Improvement team is comprised of the principal, 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 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.
