School Site Council
What is School Site Council?
School Site Council (SSC) is an advisory group that assists in the planning, implementing, and evaluating of the school plan for student achievement.
Who participates in School Site Council?
The SSC is composed of the principal, parents (5), teachers (3), and other school personnel (1), elected by their respective groups. SSC representatives are elected to a one or two year term of office.
What are the responsibilities of School Site Council?
The California Education Code requires the school site council to develop a Single Plan for Student Achievement for Consolidated Application programs operated at the school or in which the school participates. In addition, Pupil Retention and School and Library Improvement Block Grant programs operated at the school must be included in the Single Plan for Student Achievement. The school site council must approve the plan, recommend it to the local governing board for approval, monitor implementation of the plan, and evaluate the results. At least annually, the school site council must revise the plan, including proposed expenditures of funds allocated to the school through the Consolidated Application, and recommend it to the local governing board for approval.
The 10 Site Council members, who represent Center Street’s teachers, staff and parents meet at 3:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of most months. SSC representatives are elected in May and serve staggered two year terms.
Center Street School Site Council is an excellent venue to learn about the challenges Center Street faces, the strategies put in place to produce results, and the many achievements of the students, teachers and staff.
All parents are always welcome at SSC meetings.
