The School Site Council (SSC) is involved in the overall decision-making structure at each school. They are a group of people who are elected by their peers to represent the members of the school community. The SSC consists of 5 community members, the principal, one classified employee, and 3 certificated employees.
Their primary role is to guide the Site Planning Process to ensure that the needs of all students are specifically addressed in the school's Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
The SSC reviews and updates the SPSA and monitors its implementation, periodically assessing its effectiveness and communicating its status to the community; establishes and communicates school-wide priorities for the current school year; identifies, develops and implements areas that strength the core program; and approves and monitors the expenditures of funds allocated to the school through the ConApp (Consolidated Application), which is used by the California Department of Education to distribute categorical funds from various state and federal agencies.
