The role of the School Site Council
Each member of the school site council is an important stakeholder here at Ipakanni. Whether you are an administrator, teacher, parent/guardian or a community member, we appreciate your support and contribution in making our school a safe and efficient learning environment for our students.
School Site Council (SSC) Leadership and Composition
School Improvement is a program for elementary, intermediate, and secondary schools to improve instruction, services, school environment, and organization at school sites according to plans developed by School Site Councils.
The California Education Code requires the school site councils to:
Measure the effectiveness of improvement strategies at the school.
Seek input from school advisory committees.
Reaffirm or revise school goals.
Revise improvement strategies and expenditures.
Recommend the approved single plan for student achievement (SPSA) to the governing board.
Monitor implementation of the SPSA
Pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 52855 and EC 64001 a school site council (SSC) is to develop, annually review and updates the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SSC must recommend the SPSA to the local governing board for approval. Thus the role of the SSC is crucial to the success of the categorical programs a school may have.
