Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization. The PTO is a nonprofit group comprised of parents, teachers, and staff dedicated to improving the educational experience of all students. Our goals are to encourage interaction between family and school, serve as a source of support, and work with teachers, staff, and the community at large to improve our children’s educational experience. The PTO works closely with the school administration to meet this goal.
School Improvement Council (SIC)
About the SIC
The Nursery Road Elementary School-Arts Magnet Improvement Council serves as an advisory committee to the principal and faculty. Unlike the PTO and other voluntary school organizations, the NRES-SIC is mandated by law. The NRES-SIC plays a key role in the education of our children by bringing together parents, teachers and community stakeholders to collaborate on the improvement of our school.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”
What the SIC Does
1.Participates in the development and implementation of the five-year school improvement plan.
2.Assists in monitoring and evaluating the school's success in reaching the plan's goals and objectives.
3.Assists with the annual report to parents about the schools progress.
4.Assists with the narrative for the annual School Report Card.
5.Advises on the use of school incentive awards and provides assistance as requested by the principal.
The School Improvement Council does not have any of the powers and duties reserved by the local school board.
