School Site Council

The School Site Council develops the School Plan for Student Achievement for programs funded through the consolidated application.
 

School Site Council Composition

The members of the SSC represent the composition of the school’s pupil population and notwithstanding the size of the school, the composition of the SSC shall ensure parity between the groups (EC Section 65000[a]).

 

The SSC in an elementary school shall be composed of both of the following two groups (EC Section 65000[c][1]):

 

School Group Members (Elementary Schools):

  • The principal of the school or his or her designee;
  • school personnel employed at the school who are not teachers, selected by school personnel employed at the school who are not teachers, and
  • classroom teachers employed at the school, selected by classroom teachers employed at the school; The classroom teachers selected shall constitute a majority of the school members selected (EC Section 65000[c][1][A]); and

 

Parent and/or Community Group Members (Elementary Schools):

  • Parents of pupils attending the school, or other members of the school community, selected by parents of pupils attending the school. The number of parent and/or community members selected shall equal the number of school members selected (EC Section 65000[c][1][B]).

 

In other words, the minimum number of SSC members at an elementary school is a total of ten (10) (e.g. 1 principal or his or her designee, 1 other school personnel, 3 classroom teachers, and 5 parent/community members).
