Fallon School Site Council

The Fallon School Site Council (SSC) is composed of faculty members, parents and community members working together to maintain the best educational environment for our students. With that goal in mind, we are asking interested parents to consider nominating themselves or another 2017-2018 Fallon parent. These members are part of the voting membership of the SSC and serve as the representative voice of all Fallon Middle School parents.
We have two open positions for the upcoming school year. Each position is for a two year term. SSC members will be elected by all attending parents in a general election held during our May 15th meeting at 3.30 pm. If elected, members are expected to attend our monthly meetings which are usually scheduled on the second Monday of the month from 3:30 pm to approximately 4:30 pm.
If you're interested in joining, please email with a short  statement of interest t o Swati Chopra at  swatichopra@yahoo.com.
