School Site Council
What is School Site Council? California Education Code 52852 requires that a School Site Council shall be established at each school that participates in Title I or LCFF supplemental/concentration grant funding.
The School Site Council is a team comprised of the school staff, parent(s)/guardians, and/or community members, and students (when appropriate).
School Site Council members are elected, with teachers electing teachers, parents/guardians electing parents/guardians/community members, and students electing students.
The School Site Council 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).
The SPSA is the school’s plan or blueprint for activities that will be carried out to improve the school and student achievement. The plan outlines the specific activities and the funding, either Title I or LCFF which will be utilized.
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.
