SCC: School Community Council
In Session Laws of Hawaii (SLH) 2004, the legislature passed act 51 as amended by act 221. This law established a school community council (SCC) for each of Hawaii’s public schools. School community councils are forums for exchanging ideas about how to improve student achievement among the school's stakeholders: Administration, faculty, staff, parents, students and community members. School community councils are a major part of the overall leadership structure at each school. They are a group of people who are elected by their peers to advise the principal on specific matters that affect student achievement and school improvement. Their primary role is to participate in the process to ensure that the needs of all students are specifically addressed in the overall education plan for the school.
