Carlisle School Council submits its recommendations

Encouraging empathy and civility among children as well as adults in the school community, and assessing the transition from Carlisle Middle School to the Concord-Carlisle High School, should be priorities according to the Carlisle School Council. That committee submitted their 2000 School Improvement Plan to the Carlisle School Committee on June 6. Several areas of the plan, two years in the making, were highlighted at the meeting.

The purpose of the school council is to assist in identifying educational needs, reviewing the annual budget and formulating a school improvement plan. The council, formed each year according to a mandate from the state, includes teachers and administrators, parents of school children, and community members not otherwise affiliated with the school.

This past year, school council members were principal Andy Goyer (co-chair), parents Christy Barbee (co-chair), Kathryn Dennison, Colie O'Donnell and Martha Bedrosian, teachers Gerrie Madigan, Heather Swift and Wendy Stack, and community members Ron O'Reilly and Wendell Sykes.

CSC members wanted to meet with the school council to discuss the recommendations in greater detail and agreed to hold such a meeting during the next school year.
