School Site Council

The mission of the LdV School Site Council is to identify, monitor, and support underperforming student groups and, through public dialogue and allocation of Local Control Funding Formula resources, improve the academic and social performance of those targeted groups.


The 2020-21 Site Council includes these members:

Dave O’Toole (parent member and chair)

Kris Williams (parent member and vice chair)

Jennifer Laflam (parent member and secretary)

Principal Devon Davis                 

Vice Principal Tiffany Ballard

Meetings usually occur in the school library, however, while distance learning is occurring the meetings occur via a Zoom link, which is shared in the LdV newsletter with the agenda, the week of the meeting.  The zoom link can also be obtained by contacting Dave O’Toole at  


Parents and teachers are always welcome to join and share their thoughts on the issues being discussed or other issues related to the Site Council mission.

The principle focus of Site Council is to implement provisions of the annual School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).  Every school in the district prepares these plans and the full SPSA for LdV can be found here.


The LdV Site Council seeks to achieve its mission in the 2020-21 school year through these SPSA goals:


Math Goal:  By June 2021, Hispanic, English Learner (EL), African American, and students with disabilities or who are socio economically disadvantaged will score 70% and above on standardized assessments and report cards grades; EL, African American, and low socio-economic students will achieve a 10% increase above standard on district Interim Common Math Assessments; and EL students will increase scores 15% from prior year to meet grade level expectations. 


ELA Goal:   LdV will improve the ELA scores of 4th-6th grade African American, Hispanic, English Language learner, socio-economically disadvantaged, and disabled children by one report card number and by 10% above the District Benchmark Assessments by June 2021.


LdV will increase counseling referrals and outreach from approximately 20 students per year to 50 students.


You can find the LdV Site Council bylaws below. 


Thank you for your interest in Site Council and we hope to see you at a meeting!
