Parent Involvement

West Street Elementary School stands behind the belief that parents/guardians are their children’s first and most influential teachers and that sustained parent involvement in the education of their children contributes greatly to student achievement and a positive school environment.
West Street School Site Council
West Street School Site Council is a decision-making group comprised of parents and staff who represent our school and community in an advisory position. The Council annually reviews the Comprehensive School Safety Plan (CSSP) and the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). It provides a venue for parents to learn more about the programs at our school and to serve in an advisory capacity to the principal and school.
English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) 
West Street's English Language Advisory Council (ELAC) is a group of representative parents from our elementary school whose children are English Learners. The ELAC's purpose is to advise the school and district on programs and services available for their students in order to achieve academic success. We also provide topics of interest for EL parents to further our parent educational outreach.  All parents are welcome to attend these informational meetings held a few times during the school year.
