School Improvement Teams are required by North Carolina General Statute to develop School Improvement Plans.
The General Assembly of North Carolina views parental involvement as a critical component of school success and positive student achievement. North Carolina G.S. requires that parents, along with teachers, administrators, and non-instructional personnel, have a substantial role in developing school improvement plans to increase student achievement (§ 115C-105.27).
Buncombe County Schools (BCS) encourages and endorses shared decision making, evidenced by its Purpose, Direction, and Belief statements. Shared decision making is also evident in the Purpose, Direction, and Belief statements for Valley Springs Middle School.
Each school within Buncombe County Schools is required to write a new School Improvement Plan (SIP) every two years.
The new plan for Valley Springs Middle School is representative
of the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years.
When the VSMS School Improvement Team (SIT) makes changes and/or updates the SIP, an updated version of the plan will be posted.
