School Site Council

Schools are required to form School Site Councils when they receive categorical funding from the state and federal government. California Education Code mandates that schools write a plan to describe how categorical money will be spent. A representative group of stakeholders develops this plan and makes
decisions on how to spend the money according to the plan (ED Code 52852). A School Site Council performs many important roles, including: 

  • Develops and approves the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)
    • Sets and reviews school goals and selects specific improvements
    • Establishes budgets to support the goals and actions in the SPSA
    • Recommends and submits SPSA to the Board of Education
  • Annually reviews and modifies the SPSA
    • Monitors and evaluates implementation of the SPSA
    • Evaluates the effectiveness of the Plan
    • Ensures alignment with the Local Control Accountability Plan
  • Collaborates with Advisory Groups such as ELAC and PAC
  • Encourages parent, family, and community involvement
    • Encourages broad representation of parents, community members, teachers and students
    • Includes all socioeconomic, ethnic, and programmatic groups represented in the school
