What is the School Site Council?

The School Site Council (SSC) is made up of parents, community members, and school staff. It meets at the school once a month in the evening for about 1.5 hours. Its primary function is to carry out the legislative requirements of a school site council, which include:

  • Develop and approve the School Site Plan, a comprehensive plan designated to improve the effectiveness of the school program
  • Allocate funds for School Improvement (SIP) and Economic Impact Aid/Limited English Proficiency (EIA/LEP)
  • Advise on other compensatory/categorical education funds that the school receives
  • Annually review the School Site Plan, establish a new budget, and if necessary, make other modifications in the plan to reflect changing needs and priorities
  • Recommend the approval of the revised School Site Plan to the District Governing Board
  • Meet on a regular basis to share information, discuss needs and successes, and plan program improvements
  • Participate as necessary in Coordinate Compliance Reviews (CCR)
  • Develop systems for ongoing communication with parents, community members, the school staff, and the District (each elected member serves a two-year term)

 

Being a member of the SSC is a great opportunity to become involved in a meaningful way with your child's school!
