School Site Council Nomination Form

School Site Council Nomination Form

Would you be interested in serving on the Plainfield Elementary School Site Council as a parent representative? To nominate yourself or a fellow parent, you may submit your/his/her name on this form (or in writing to the school office) by Friday, November 3, 2023.  Elections will take place the week of Nov. 13 - Nov. 17th.

School Site Council is composed of equal numbers of staff and parent representatives who serve a two-year term. They meet eight times a year to oversee the implementation of various programs in the school, including state and federally-funded programs. The School Site Council is a governing body that is responsible for deciding how to spend approximately $38,000 of categorical money to improve the instructional program here at Plainfield Elementary. Each school in the district receives a different amount of money, based on enrollment. The School Site Council members work together, to set goals, for improving student achievement at the school and allocating the funds to accomplish those goals.

For the coming school year, we have three parent openings. Please contact one of our current members if you have questions. Parents are 

Our first meeting for newly elected members will be Wednesday, December 13, from 7:00 to 7:30 am via zoom. Future meeting times are the third Wednesday of the month at 7 am. This is a two-year position. The membership term is December 2023 through November 2025.
Plainfield's School Site Council is currently composed of ten members, who meet on a monthly basis to discuss, make recommendations on, and approve the use of our school's state and federal categorical funds. Of the ten members on the SSC, five are parents.

Except for the principal, parents, teachers, and classified staff on the Site Council serve for a period of two years, and must be elected by the groups they represent.

Being on the School Site Council is one of the primary ways parents express their collective voice on how the school allocates funding. Elections take place on an annual basis. If you would like to participate in this way, please contact the principal, Phil Pinegar, for more information.
