Landels School Site Council

School Site Council

A School Site Council (SSC) is group of teachers, parents, administrators, and interested community members who work together to develop and monitor the School Plan for Student Achievement. It is a legally required decision-making body for any school receiving federal funds. The California Legislature believes that the individuals who are most affected by the operation of the school should have a major role in the decisions regarding how a school functions. Education should be a joint effort of parents, teachers, administrators, and other school staff.

The actions of the School Site Council are the first step in a formal process for developing improvement strategies and for allocating resources to support these efforts. The SSC decides upon the focus of the school’s academic instructional programs and all related categorical resource expenditures for a school.

What does a School Site Council do?

- Develops and approves the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)
- Sets and/or reviews school goals and selects specific improvements
- Establishes budgets based upon the SPSA
- Recommends and submits site plan to Board of Education for approval
- Reviews and modifies the SPSA
- Monitors and evaluates implementation of SPSA and resulting student achievement
- Assesses effectiveness of planned strategies, activities and remedies
- Encourages parent, family, and community involvement
