School Site Council
The School Site Council (SSC) is the decision-making council for Consolidated Application programs operated at the school to improve student achievement. The SSC shall develop and approve the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) in consultation with all stakeholders, with the review, certification and advice of any applicable school advisory committee, including the Compensatory Education Advisory Committee (CEAC), the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and the Gifted & Talented Education Program Advisory Committee.
Roles and responsibilities of the SSC are to:
- Develop a comprehensive Single Plan for Student Achievement
- Ensure that the school is continually engaged in identifying and implementing curriculum and instructional practices
The SSC is not to be viewed as an advisory body whose advice may be accepted or rejected. Rather, the actions of the SSC constitute the first step in a formal process for developing improvement strategies and for allocating resources to support these efforts.
The SSC must meet at least eight (8) times per year.
