School Site Council

What is the School Site Council?

At the elementary level, the School Site Council (SSC) is composed of ten members -- 50% school staff/teachers and 50% parents/community members.
5 School Staff Members: 1 Principal, 3 Classroom Teachers, 1 Other Staff (ie. food clerk, secretary, librarian)
5 Parents or Community Members

Generally, members are elected to a two-year term, with half elected in odd years and half elected in even years.  (So half of the council always has at least one year experience.)

The School Site Council acts as the governing body of the school for school-site decisions related to the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and budget decisions to ensure alignment to SPSA.  The SSC also reviews and updates the School Safety Plan, the Title I Parent Involvement Policy and School-Parent Compact.
