What is School Site Council?
The School Site Council is an elected advisory committee made up of parents, students, community members, and school staff. The committee's sole purpose is: to review achievement data, gather community input, and assist in development/review of the SPSA and Title 1 School Budget.
*Attendance is required at all monthly meetings*
Education Codes Section 52012 requires that a School Site Council be established at each school that participates in program improvement, requiring a Single Plan for Students Achievement (SPSA), and mandates a specific composition of that council.
The Council must be composed of:
- 10-12 members minimum.
- One-half is staff and one-half is parents.
- 50% Parents and Students = 3 parents and 3 students.
- 50% Staff= 1 Principal, 4 Teachers and 1 other staff.
- "Other" Staff is any staff member who does not have a classroom roll.
They actively contribute input and recommendations to ensure the development and approval of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SSC regularly reviews and updates the school plan and budget, adapting to evolving needs and priorities within the school community. Additionally, the SSC is instrumental in approving the Title I budget aligned with SPSA strategies, recommending SPSA to the Local Education Agency (LEA) for approval, and executing various activities mandated by district, governing board, and state and federal laws. The council aids in assessing the effectiveness of the SPSA through monitoring tools and participates in reviews at the LEA, State, and Federal levels. Furthermore, the SSC engages parents, community members, teachers, and students in discussions about their schools, seeks input on community needs, and enhances public understanding of education. It also oversees the annual review and updating of the School Site Title I Parent Involvement Policy/Action and the Home-School Compact, while actively encouraging parental involvement and providing a platform for emerging leadership and open forums on educational issues.
