Palms Middle School

Local School Leadership Council (LSLC)

The Local School Leadership Council (LSLC) is a shared decision-making body, composed of elected parents, community members, school personnel, and the Student Body President and Vice President (students in Leadership). The LSLC works cooperatively to make decisions in four areas of the school program:

  1. School calendar
  2. Student discipline
  3. Budget for instructional materials
  4. Professional development

If you are interested in participating in LSLC, come to the first meeting!

LSLC History

The Local School Leadership Council (LSLC) program was created in 1989, in response to teacher demands for schools to have more local control.  The Council allows parent, teachers, other school staff members to contribute to planning that affects their school.

LSLC's primary purpose is to influence the budgeting of funds titled 4170, but it is also in charge of event scheduling and other areas.

Palms needs 5 parents and 1 alternate for the LSLC.  Meetings are monthly as shown in the schedule on the right.


The LSLC meets monthly, on Mondays, at 6:00pm (unless otherwise indicated), in the Library.
