The School Site Council (SSC) is a committee composed of parents, teachers, and staff, with the primary responsibility for "identifying and implementing curriculum and instructional practices that result in both strengthening the core academic program and ensuring that students have access to and success in that program" (School Improvement Office, California Department of Education, November 1991).  Each public school in California has a local SSC. SSC's basic principle is that those individuals who are most affected by the operations of their schools should have a major role in the decisions regarding how the school functions.  Each segment of the school community that makes up the SSC brings a unique perspective and knowledge of how the school currently functions and how it might be improved and strengthened to offer the best possible program to students. 

The California Education Code requires School Site Councils to:
  1. Measure effectiveness of improvement strategies at the school.

  2. Seek input from school advisory committees.
  3. Reaffirm or revise school goals.
  4. Revise improvement strategies and expenditures.
  5. Recommend the approved single plan for student achievement (SPSA) to the governing board.
  6. Monitor implementation of the SPSA.

The purpose of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is to raise the academic performance of all students to the level of state achievement standards”. Based on our State’s Educational Code (Sections 41507, 41572, 64001) and the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) each school must combine all plans involving state and federal funding into one comprehensive school plan.
