What is SIAC and CTE?

The School Improvement Advisory Committee, including Career Technical Education members, meets three or four times a year.

Annually, the SIAC/CTE group is charged with making recommendations to the School Board regarding progress achieved against annual improvement goals for the state indicators addressing reading, mathematics, and science, and progress achieved with other locally determined indicators that address the core content areas.

Within the SIAC, each district in Iowa, to the extent possible, is required to have committee membership that is a balanced representation with regard to race, gender, national origin, and disability. Membership includes students, parents, teachers,/staff, administrators, and representatives from the local community.

A brief list of some of the SIAC goals and purposes: 

  • Understand and exemplify the school improvement process.
  • Work collaboratively to support the district and students.
  • Connect with community businesses and area service agencies in regard to school improvement.
  • Review and receive reports regarding curriculum processes and educational programming.
  • Review, plan, evaluate and monitor Career Technical Education goals, objectives, Plan of Study, etc.
  • Review of district goals, analyze student achievement data, and make recommendations.
  • Every five years conduct a community needs assessment.
