George Shirakawa Sr. School's Site Council (SSC)
The School Site Council is a decision-making body made up of parents, community representatives, and school staff members. The School Site Council's primary responsibility is to oversee the funds the school receives. The funds are designed to improve student performance as measured by standardized tests, the District's State & Federal Program, and classroom performance. Please refer to the School Site Council page for more information.
George Shirakawa Sr. School's Volunteer Program
Helping in the classroom or around the school is a great way to stay involved and support our George Shirakawa Sr. School community. To volunteer in the classroom, please contact your student's teacher so a schedule can be arranged. The teacher will need to add your name to the volunteer log so your visit will be expected by the front office. To volunteer around the school, please contact the front office. Here are just a few ideas of the kind of roles we need on a regular basis:
- Field Trip Chaperones
- Event Planning
- Classroom Assistant
District Level Parent Committees
The Franklin-McKinley School District offers a variety of parent involvement opportunities that allow you to become a representative for your child’s school. We welcome parents to participate in the District English Language Advisory Committee (DELAC) and Superintendent's Advisory Committee (SAC).
