School Site Council
The School Site Council (SSC) is a team comprised of the school principal, teachers, other staff and parents and/or community members and, in high schools students participate on the team. School Site Council members are elected, with teachers electing teachers, parents electing parents, and students electing students.
What does the SSC do? The SSC:
- Looks at student data and school information, identifies student needs and areas for improvement, and participates in the creation/revision of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)/Local Control Accountability Plan. The School Site Council also monitors the plan to see that the actions have occurred; the funding spent and evaluates the activities at the end of the school year.
- Annually reviews/revises the Parent/Guardian Involvement Policy and School-Parent/Guardian Compact (Commitment to Excellent Contracts at PS7 and Sac High).
- Serves as the school’s English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) or District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC), as necessary, and fulfills the requirements of those committees when the school has 21 English Learners or 51 English Learners, respectively. The ELAC and DELAC advise on the above school plans to ensure English Learner needs are met.
- Carries out other committee functions as assigned by the SHPS Board of Directors or Superintendent.
All SSC meetings are public. Agendas are posted (usually in the office) 72 hours in advance.
