School Site Council (SSC)
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 Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and the school site budget,
- and monitoring the implementation of the plan and budget.
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, Fountas & Pinnell, CELDT, 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?.
- In the fall, the process is repeated, once enrollment numbers and state budgets have been finalized. Look for those dates to be updated on this page in late August or early September.
