School Improvement Team

School Improvement Team


Blue Ridge Elementary has an active School Improvement Team (SIT) that meets every second Thursday of the month during the school year.  Each year this team, along with the grade levels or areas they represent, develops our School Improvement/Title 1 Plan and Parent Involvement Plan, allocates our Title 1 budget, and reviews our progress toward meeting school, district, and statewide targets.  The SIT members for 2016-17 are:
