The School Site Council (SSC) and the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is an opportunity for parents, students, teachers and community members to voice interests and concerns in the school programs provided at VOCS. SSC/PAC members participate in establishing priorities, planning the educational program, allocating funding, defining goals, and evaluating the academic effectiveness of the school. Members also act as facilitators of communication among the school, parents, and the community. SSC/PAC meetings provide an opportunity to understand and shape the philosophy and quality of education our children receive each day. At the beginning of each school year, VOCS will hold an election for parents and students to participate in the SSC. Please consider this opportunity to become involved in shaping the learning environment at VOCS.
