What is SSC?
School Site Council (SSC) is a group of teachers, parents and classified employees who work with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. School Site Council members are elected by peers and serve a two-year term.
The principle underlying establishment of School Site Council is that those individuals most affected by the operation of their school should have a role in the decisions regarding how their school functions. As an organizational unit that is representative of all segments of the school community, it is delegated the responsibility for developing a comprehensive strategy in the Single Plan for Student Achievement to ensure ≠that all resources available to the school, the base program and the supplemental resources are coordinated and focused on providing a high-quality educational program in which students of all ranges of ability and background can learn and succeed.
Governed by School Site Council Bylaws, SSC meets four times per year in September, October, February and May at 3:15pm in the media center. Meetings are open to the public.
