The School Improvement/Title One Planning Team (SIC) serves as an advisory committee to a school's principal and faculty. Unlike the PTO and other voluntary school organizations, councils are mandated by law to exist in every public school in South Carolina.
SICs play a key role in the education of our state's children, bringing together parents, educators, and community stakeholders to work collectively to improve their local schools. SICs do not have any of the powers and duties reserved by the local school board.
More than 16,000 people serve on SICs in South Carolina.
SICs work with the schools to develop and implement a five-year school improvement plan (also known as the school renewal plan), monitor and evaluate success in reaching the plan's goals and objectives, write an annual report to parents about the progress of the plan, and assist the principal in writing the narrative for the School Report Card.
