The LSC and Principal work together to maintain the school’s high standards of education.

Pulaski International School Local School Council (LSC) encourages parents, teachers and community members to participate by serving on committees that work to improve school life.

Pulaski’s LSC is an elected body whose primary responsibilities are to select the school’s principal, renew the principal’s contract, approve the Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP), and approve the school’s budget. The LSC consists of six parents, two teachers, one school staff member, two community members and the principal of the school. Council members are elected every two years in April. The Roles and Responsibilities of the LSC can be be found here.

Meetings

Please join us! Pulaski’s LSC meets the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM in the school library. These meetings are open to everyone.  Pulaski’s LSC welcomes and encourages the participation of parents, community members, teachers and neighbors. You can contact an LSC member to have an item placed on the agenda. You can also attend meetings and speak during Public Participation at every meeting. Please check Upcoming Events and/or the school Calendar for any updates.
