EMHS - School Leadership Team

The School Improvement Plan (SIP) is a guiding document that identifies EMHS's priority needs and establishes strategies for meeting those needs. The School Improvement Plan contains the goals and strategies to ensure that EMHS students have programming and resources in place to help them achieve to their greatest potential. The SIP remains in effect for two years, although through frequent review, the School Leadership Team may amend it as often as is necessary or appropriate.

The primary responsibility of the School Leadership Team (SLT) is to create, revise, monitor, and evaluate the School Improvement Plan (SIP). The School Improvement Plan contains the strategic plan for the year and the goals/strategies to ensure that EMHS students have programming and resources in place to help them achieve to their greatest potential. SLT is a committee comprised of the Principal, staff members, and parent volunteers.

East Mecklenburg welcomes parent volunteers to join our School Leadership Team. If you would like to be considered as a member of our SLT team, please contact
