School Site Council

School Site Council

The School Site Council (SSC) is a group of teachers, parents, community members and the principal. Its job is to oversee and approve our improvement program and budgets, as mandated by Title 1 law. The members are elected for two-year terms and every member has an equal vote.

2022 SSC Elections

The School Site Council (SSC) is composed of the school principal and a group of people, selected by their peers, representing all segments of the school community: teacher, support staff, parents, and student members of the secondary level. The common goal and focus of this elected body are to support student success. The SSC does this by developing and monitoring the implementation of the school's plan known as the Single Plan for Student Achievement.

How is this funding used?

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) shows how school districts will use targeted state funding to improve outcomes for all students, especially low income, English Learners, and foster youth.

Schools receive Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) budgets through LCAP, which are spent by the SSCs according to their SPSA.
