About the LSIC

Purpose

Local School Improvement Council (LSIC) is required per W.Va. Code § 18-5A-2 to exist at each public school in West Virginia. Membership of the LSIC is comprised of teachers, service personnel, bus drivers, parents, business and community representatives. An election occurs annually for membership. The LSIC is directly involved with the operation of the local school in many ways. The LSIC reviews discipline data and procedures yearly and submit written recommendations to the local school board. They encourage the involvement of the school community with the school operation through regular meetings and collaboration. They support local initiative for school improvement by being directly involved in the strategic planning and innovative ideas. A direct link with the local school board occurs through an annual meeting at which all school aspects inclusive of academics, athletics, discipline, school climate, facilities, needs, improvement, and recommendations are presented and discussed.
