Parent Principal Advisory Board

"Good things take time, hard work, and a strong and caring heart." - Casey Powers (2014 PSA scholarship award recipient)


With all the changes and construction going on, this is an exciting time not only for students and teachers, it is an exciting time for us, as parents and supporters of our high school students. This year the high school will be going on its journey to attain their accreditation through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the school is asking for our help.

For those of you who are not aware of how important accreditation is; without a student graduating from an accredited school, the chance for them to continue on in their education, in college would not be possible. Almost all colleges and universities require entering students, graduate from an accredited high school. So you can see how important this is!!

The PPAB, along with Principal Saam, wants parents to be involved in the school and involved in some of the decisions that are made. The PPAB will be an advisory board and we need to hear your feedback, ideas, creativeness, and insight.

The school and the teachers cannot do it alone, they need our help!!

Reach out even if you cannot be physically present at meetings, you can still have a strong voice.


First Meeting of the 2016-2017 School Year

The first meeting of the PPAB will be Sept 19, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. in the main office conference room. There are only 4 meetings a year and we try to keep meetings to one hour. We want the parent voice!

Here are some of the agenda items: 

  • NEASC accreditation
  • Mission statement
  • 21st Century Learner Expectations
  • R.I.G.H.T. (new school-wide positive behavior system)
  • Parent liaisons
  • Community outreach
  • Grant pursuits

Our goal is to make the high school the best it can be and be as transparent as possible to families. Please consider attending this meeting.
