School Site Council

 

The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and schoolbudgets. The members of the site council are generally elected by their peers.

The SSC is focused on developing and approving the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), which identifies and implements curriculum and instructional practices to support high achievement goals.  Development of the SPSA is done in consultation with various stakeholders, including the Compensatory Education Advisory Committee (CEAC), the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and the Gifted and Talented Education Program Advisory Committee (GATE). They are also charged with developing an annual budget for the use of state school improvement funds to support the SPSA.
