School Councils

School Site Council (SSC)

School Site Council (SSC) is the decision-making council for all programs funded through the Consolidated Application. The SSC is responsible for all federal mandates, including those related to parent involvement, specifically the school Title 1 Parent Involvement Policy and budget (E046), Title 1 School-Parent Compact (pursuant to California Education Code 52852). The council is comprised of no fewer than 12 members, half of which is school faculty and staff with classroom teachers as the majority. The other half consists of parents or legal guardians not employed at the school, students, and community members. Public comment is allowable and guests are welcome.

Meeting dates: The 3rd Tuesday of designated months

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC) is a state required council comprised of elected parents of current English learners (EL) that makes recommendations to SSC regarding the school's English Learner Program.

ELAC meets once a month and focuses on authentic and holistic parent voice.  The committee reviews EL data, provides input on relevant matters for EL students, and makes recommendations to SSC regarding the needs of English learners and the program.
