What is the Centennial Site Council?
Where we find success, we likely find collaboration, communication and cooperation: The Centennial Site Council is an advisory body of community stakeholders who collaborate with administration to promote school improvement.
Students, parents, teachers, staff members, and administrators meet regularly to identify common goals and assist administration in establishing plans to achieve them. Our Site Council members also help to allocate Centennial’s tax credit donations.
Over the last three years, Centennial's Site Council members identified areas for potential school improvement and provided essential feedback regarding communication, alternatives to suspension, campus safety, attendance, and college admissions. They adopted a constitution and helped to inform changes to district policies such as the student dress code. CeHS Site Council approved funding for Statistics textbooks and chalkboard replacements, developed a program to incentivize campus clubs and sports to help fund a built-in cafeteria trophy case, and supported the "You Are Loved" mural in the breezeway between the 100 and 200 Buildings.
We're looking forward to another productive and engaging year, focused around doing what's best for our Coyotes and Centennial High School!
