Chapter XVII: Local School Improvement Council

Local School Improvement Councils (LSICs) play a crucial role in school governance by promoting shared decision-making and involving stakeholders in the improvement process. LSICs typically consist of representatives from diverse backgrounds, including parents, teachers, school administrators, community members, and sometimes students. Their primary objective is to assess the strengths and weaknesses of a school and collaboratively develop strategies to enhance education within that school. By fostering collaboration and shared decision-making, LSICs empower stakeholders to contribute to the improvement of their local schools. Their collective expertise and insights help identify challenges, set goals, and implement effective solutions, ultimately enhancing the quality of education provided to students.
