WHat is scc?

The School Community Council (SCC) plays a vital role in the education system in Hawaii. It is a forum through which members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance. Its purpose is to advise Principals about matters that are intended to improve student well-being and enhance the accountability of the education system.

SCCs are able to make recommendations to their Principals on academic and financial matters. Principals, in turn, consult with SCCs on a variety of issues that affect student learning. SCCs involve the community in the discussion of education issues and help schools identify and respond to the educational needs of the community.

 

ACADEMIC FInancial plan

Goal 1. ASSURE ALL STUDENTS GRADUATE COLLEGE- AND CAREER-READY THROUGH EFFECTIVE USE OF STANDARDS-BASED EDUCATION

Goal 2. ENSURE AND SUSTAIN A RICH ENVIRONMENT AND CULTURE FOR LIFE-LONG LEARNERS

Goal 3. CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVE THE EFFECTIVENESS, EFFICIENCY, AND RESPONSIVENESS OF THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM

Ewa Makai Middle School strives to empower teachers as well as students. We believe that a school structure is most effective when all stake holders have an active role. Having teacher leadership helps to develop a sense of ownership and pride. Teacher leadership is also essential to building capacity and stability within a school. As our school grows, this sense of stability will be necessary to maintain the consistency and integrity of our programs and practices. This consistency in turn will have a positive effect on teacher satisfaction, student learning and our relationship with the parents and community
