School Site Council (SSC)

The School Site Council is a shared decision making body composed of parents, site administrators, teachers, other staff and students.

School Site Councils are required by the State of California to oversee our school’s Site Plan and oversees all the categorical funds such as Title I, Second Language and GATE. Our Council 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 representatives.
