School Improvement Team (SIT)

The Ephesus School Improvement Team (SIT) is a state-mandated organization made up of elected Ephesus staff and parents. Our purpose is to "develop a school improvement plan to strengthen student performance".  In addition to the development of the School Improvement Plan, the SIT also:

  • approves the annual capital and operational budget requests to the district and school board.
  • serves as counsel to the district and the school board.
  • functions as an advisory group to the principal and may provide input on issues such as school climate, safety, programs, and philosophy.
  • solicits input from our school community and hears concerns of our constituents about school programs.

The SIT cannot endorse political candidates, but can advocate for Ephesus at a local, state, and national level.

All meetings are open to the public. There is a public comment portion of each at the beginning of the agenda.
