We have a variety of organizations that involve parents and school staff in our school.
School Site Council
The School Site Council is a shared decision making body composed of parents, staff, and classified personnel.
School Site Councils are required by the State of California to oversee
our school’s Site Plan and Title I budgets. Our Council is identifies
needs for academic programs and sets budgets. Its main responsibility is
to prepare and monitor the School Site Plan.
This plan reflects our school"s educational goals and its main
strategies for achieving those goals for all of its students. The Site
Council is also responsible for approving our school"s budget for the
compensatory education funds we receive each year. These funds are
allocated by the state and federal governments to serve the educational
needs of low-income children.
Members of the School Site Council are elected to two-year terms with
parents, staff and classified personnel electing their own
For more information on the School Site Council, contact the office.
English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)
When a school has 21 or more English Learners, it must form an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC).
The primary purpose of ELAC is to advise the school principal and school
staff regarding the instructional programs and support services for
English Learners. ELAC is also responsible for advising the School Site
Council (SSC) and reviewing the Site Plan for Student Achievement
The school is responsible for training and providing appropriate support
to all ELAC members. By doing so, ELAC members will be well-informed
and thus be able to communicate meaningful input and advice to the
school about its efforts to educate English Learners.
If you'd like to get involved in the ELAC, contact the office.

Site Governance Team
The Governance Team is a shared decision making body, required at each
school by the San Diego Unified School District Board of Education.
The teams meet regularly to discuss and make decisions about issues affecting our school and our children.
The team includes parents, teachers and classified staff, and the
principal. The agendas are available for public review and the meetings
are open to the public.
Parents are welcome to call parent members with questions and concerns to be brought to the team.
