Dunklin R-5 Site Councils

Site Councils are groups assigned to each building in the district. Site Councils members include school staff, parents, community members, business, faith-based, and human service agencies. 

Site Council’s are extremely important to the framework. Site councils work to identify and address needs specific to their building. They are the “boots on the ground” and are our first line of defense to meet a child’s needs that could not otherwise be met through our internal resources.


Site Councils also contribute to the culture and climate of their school building by helping to build a positive and welcoming learning environment. Students that feel a greater sense of belonging to their school community are more likely to stay engaged and finish school to completion.


Site councils typically meet once a month for 1-2 hours.
