Site Council Training Agenda
The School Site Council is an important part of every California school. In Central Union School District, School Site Councils (SSC) are established at each school site. Composition of the school site council is specified in the California Education Code as follows:
The school site council shall be composed of the principal and representatives of: teachers selected by teachers at the school; other school personnel selected by other school personnel at the school; parents of students attending the school selected by such parents; and, in secondary schools, students selected by students attending the school.
There are four vital functions of School Site Council, which are addressed annually.
- Assess the needs of the school program related to the needs of pupils
- Develop a comprehensive plan, Single Plan for Student Achievement for Consolidated Application programs designed to improve the effectiveness of the school program
- Design a system to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the program
- Annually review the effectiveness of the program and develop appropriate revisions in the school plan.
All parents who are interested in serving on School Site Council are invited to attend an annual meeting for the purposes of explanation, nomination, and election of parent and community members of the School Site Council. Getting involved in the School Site Council is an excellent way to get involved in your child’s education. Please check with your school site office regarding information about the School Site Council at your school.
