• School Council & SHS Improvement Plan



    In accordance with the Massachusetts Education Reform Act of 1993, Sharon High School has a functioning and representative School Council that convenes on a regular basis during each school year.  Co-led by the principal, the group includes several students, parents, faculty, and community members.  Its primary purpose is to serve as a vehicle for assisting the principal in the development of the school’s annual improvement plan. To that end, it calls for the inclusive participation of various stakeholders who are willing and able to provide different perspectives about the school’s needs.  For the current school year, the members are as follows:

    Ralph Olsen, Interim Principal 

     Stacey Newman, Instructional Technology

    In order to help facilitate a sense of focused continuity from one school year to the next, Sharon High School has established a set of parameters to help govern membership composition on its School Council.  These guidelines were created by the School Council during the 2005-2006 school year and were subsequently approved by the School Committee.  Updated in the fall of 2013, they can be found at one of the links below.  They adhere to all state laws that guide the management, intent, and responsibilities of School Councils.  For answers to inquiries pertinent to the School Council at Sharon High School, please contact Jose Libano, Principal of Sharon High School.  For general information about School Councils and the Massachusetts Education Reform Act of 1993, please follow the other link below to the website for the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
