School Improvement Advisory Committee

The WDMCS partners with our families and community members to create an outstanding learning environment for our children.

 About the Committee

The School Improvement Advisory Committee’s (SIAC) role is to learn about and discuss student achievement, programs, and community connections, as well as serve as the district’s equity committee. The committee’s role in this capacity is to learn about our diverse community and the needs of individuals and groups, to apply an equity lens to aspects of the district’s work, and to act as an advisory committee to district administration. 

Iowa Code requires that the SIAC membership be approved annually by the School Board. The West Des Moines Community Schools SIAC membership includes parents, community members, teachers, students, and building and district administration. The following individuals are recommended to serve on the 2020-21 SIAC.
