• School Site Souncil (SSC)
    Good Afternoon Dewey Community,
    We would like to invite all Parents/Guardians, Students and Staff to our  school site council (SSC) meeting.  The SSC meets once a month to discuss & review the schools programs, and obtain community feedback on how we can improve the school to help students succeed.  This is the final meeting for the 2017-2018 school year.
    When: Monday, October 15, 2018
    Time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm
    Who: Parents/Guardians/Students/Dewey Academy Staff/Community Members
     What the school site council (SSC)does:

    The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students (at the high school level) who work with the Principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the site council are generally elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives and teachers elect teachers.

    We hope that you can attend our SSC meeting to help make Dewey Academy a successful learning environment, through growth and development of students by providing academic, social, and individual support.
