School Site Council
The McKinley School Site Council plays an important role in the decision-making of our school. Behind the creation of the Site Council is the belief that those involved with schools and students on a day-to-day basis--that is, the teachers, parents and other school employees -- can make some of the best decisions. The Site Council operates by a set of bylaws that guide its function.
The School Site Council is an elected group of teachers, parents and classified employees who work with the principal to develop, review, evaluate and allocate funds for school improvement programs. The Council makes decisions about how state-allocated school improvement funds will be spent. The idea behind the creation of the site councils in the 1970s was that those most closely involved with the schools and students on a day-to-day basis could often make the best decisions about how schools needed to improve. In general the McKinley School Site Council deals with school resources, budgets and budget allocations.
The Single Plan for Student Achievement, created by the Site Council, is a comprehensive plan designed to improve the effectiveness of the McKinley School academic program. The plan is required by the State of California and is updated by the Principal and the Site Council during the course of the school year. The plan is then approved by PUSD at a regularly scheduled meeting or whenever there are material changes that affect the academic programs for students.
The SSC monitors programs and budgets aimed at improving academic achievement of all students, especially focused on closing the achievement gap for special groups of students (economically disadvantaged, English learners, GATE, and Special Education). This year the facilities committee will be combined with SSC since we have to make important decisions about the facilities Expenditures (Measure TT).
