The School Improvement Council (SIC) is mandated by law and serves as an advisory committee to the school’s principal and faculty. The SIC brings parents, educators, students and community stakeholders together to work collectively to improve the school. The SIC is responsible for working with school administration to develop and support the five-year school improvement plan. The SIC also monitors and evaluates the school’s success in reaching the plan’s goals and objectives. 

The WHS SIC is dedicated to promoting a positive school culture where all students and families feel welcome and involved in the educational experience at Walhalla High School. We welcome you to Walhalla High School and we invite and encourage your input and involvement with SIC.
