Steering Committee

The SOTA I Steering Committee is an interactive teacher/parent led group. The main objective of the committee is to promote parental involvement in building the partnership between parents, school, and the community in educating our children. The group also works to facilitate communication between parents and the staff, to promote parental involvement in the decision making process SOTA parents are encouraged to attend our meetings. We meet the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m., in the LMC. Please consider attending to learn more about SOTA and take an active roll in your child’s education!
