What is the School Improvement Team?
School Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina law to develop school improvement plans for every public school. The team is comprised of the principal of each school, representatives of the assistant principals, instructional personnel, instructional support personnel, teacher assistants 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 Statute 115C-105.27]. Granite Falls Middle School values the contributions and active participation of parents in the school improvement process.
Caldwell County Schools is using the NC Star tool for continuous school improvement.

When does the School Improvement Team meet and can I attend the meeting?

Meetings are posted on the school calendar and are generally the fourth Wednesday of each month at 3:20 in the Media Center.
