Overview


Estes Elementary

School Improvement Team

School Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina law to develop school improvement plans. The team is comprised of the principal, the assistant principal, 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 (as 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 North Carolina that parents, along with teachers, have a substantial role in developing school improvement plans. [NC General Statutes 115C-105.27]. Buncombe County Schools encourage and endorse shared decision making as evident in our mission statement, Core Values and various policy directives.
