Steering Committee

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 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 on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m., in the school library. Please consider attending to learn more about SOTA and take an active role in your child’s education!
