Each school must have an elected School Site Council (SSC) to represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in the school governance process. The SSC has a number of important responsibilities, including:
Reviewing and analyzing student achievement data,
gathering community input,
helping develop the Balanced Scorecard/Single Plan for Student Achievement (BSC/SPSA) and the school site budget,
and monitoring the implementation of the plan and budget.
What families can expect with their school’s planning process
These are the steps in the school planning process:
Review data about your school and students and reflect on how your school is doing to support students to succeed. Examples of information you can review include:
Academic assessments, such as SBAC/CAASPP, ELPAC, writing assessments, and FEP reclassification data
Attendance, out-of-class referrals and suspension data
Student and family school climate surveys
Based on that data, set goals and identify priorities for the next school year. What are the programs, services, and other resources your school wants to focus on, to reach these goals?
How you can participate
Participate in School Site Council, ELAC and school planning meetings
