What is the Purpose of School Site Council?

The Adele Harrison Middle School is a committee of administrators, teachers, parents and students who meet monthly to discuss issues concerning Adele Harrison students and campus. Members also participate in continuing to develop and monitor Adele’s School-Wide Action Plan for Student Achievement-which includes oversight of the School Improvement Budget, categorical and special funds received as well as in reviewing school policies and procedures. School Improvement Program (SIP) funds are allotted by the state; it is the Site Council's responsibility to approve the allocation of SIP funds with the goal of meeting the needs of the Adele student population as well promoting the academic, physical, social and emotional development of all Adele Harrison students.


Membership in School Site Council is a great way to participate in your child's education as well as learn more about Adele Harrison and the Sonoma Valley Unified School District. Meetings are open to the public, and take place at 3:45 pm on the third Tuesday of each month. Please call Ellen Gruenhagen, Chairperson, at (707) 935-6080 or e-mail Ellen at EGruenhagen@sonomavly.k12.ca.us for more information.
