SCHOOL SITE COUNCIL (SSC)
Schools that receive categorical funding from the state or federal government are required to elect a School Site Council (SSC), a decision-making body responsible for developing and recommending to the School Board a "Single Plan for Student Achievement" for that particular school site.
Composed 50% of staff (including the principal, classroom teachers, and other school personnel), and 50% non-staff (including parents or other community members selected by parents), the SSC monitors implementation of the Single Plan, and evaluates the results.
The SSC is required to consider recommendations from other school advisory committees such as ELAC on the needs of students and on ways those needs could be met.
Typically, the School Site Council meets once a month on the second Tuesday of each month at 3:30 p.m.
