The Didion School Site Council is a decision-making body
primarily charged with developing and implementing the
School/Library Improvement Plan (SLIP). This includes both
long-term and short-term planning. Throughout the year, this plan
is monitored by the Council. As goals are met, or changes
arise, the plan can be updated.
The Site Council consists of approximately 10 members. The
Sacramento City School District requires that half the Council
members be parents (and/or members of the community); and half be
members of the school staff, with the majority of this group
being classroom teachers.
Staff members are selected by staff, while parents elect the
parent and community members of the council. Those
interested in joining the Site Council can submit their names to
the principal for consideration if there is an opening, and then
can be considered for a vote for the Council.
Officers include President (typically, a parent), Vice President
(typically, the principal) and a Secretary. The Officers
are selected by the Site Council at its year-end meeting.
Officers are elected for a calendar year.
Meetings are held approximately every other month during the
school year. Meetings are held in September, December,
February, April, and June, though they can be rescheduled.
Meetings last about an hour, and are usually scheduled on
Thursday afternoon at 3:00 to 4:00. The Council decides on
the meeting dates. Sometimes, the Council will hold special
meeting to approve special spending, or to amend the School
