A school-community representative body made up of the Principal, Teachers, Other School Personnel, Parents, Community Members and Students. All schools that receive federal or state categorical funding are required to have a School Site Council to give input and help decide how to spend categorical funds.
The School Site Council helps develop and approves the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), reviews specific goals, school improvements, monitors the implementation of strategies to improve student achievement, and increase community involvement. Each Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is approved for a 3 year period and connected with the East Side Union High School District LCAP. Another responsibility for the School Site Council is to provide input into the use of bond monies that are given to the school for facilities upgrades.
School Site Council elections vary for each stakeholder group: staff, students and parents. Parent elections are held each fall and any parent who is interested in participating should contact the Principal the first week of school to communicate their desire to run for a position on the council. Staff member positions are 2 year terms with staggered start dates for each position. Student positions are managed by the Associate Student Body with elections taking place in the Spring.
All agendas and minutes are posted on this webpage for public information and anyone who wishes to come to a School Site Council meeting is welcome.
