School Site Council
The School Site Council is a decision-making group that provides governance and oversight of the academic planning and budgeting process associated with the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) in order to meet the needs of all students. The SSC represents all the major stakeholders in the school community. The configuration of SSC is based according to state requirements and elections must be conducted under the principle that “peers elect peers.” SSC meetings are held at 2:30pm in the school library. All staff, parents/guardians, and community members are invited to attend meetings.
The Governance Team discusses issues and makes recommendations to the School Site Council related to raising student achievement at SCPA. The Governance Team consists of members,elected for two year terms, representing teachers, classified staff,students, parents, and community members. Meetings are held at 2:15pm in the library. All staff, parents/guardians,and community members are invited to attend meetings.
English Learners Advisory Committee
When a school has 21 or more English Learners, it must attempt to 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 (SPSA). 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. ELAC meetings are held at 2:30pm in the library. All staff, parents/guardians, and community members are invited to attend meetings.
