Site Council


The School Site Council (SSC) monitors student achievement and ensures that categorical resources are used in ways that are most likely to lead to further gains in student achievement, and the lessening of gaps in achievement between the highest and lowest performing subgroups.


The Site Council is a committee that meets monthly to hear information and requests before the Board of Directors, helps make decisions which are then recommended to the Board for their vote. Thus, before items go to the Board they go through Site Council, get voted on, and if approved, get presented to the Board. This allows more opportunity for parents and staff to have a say in matters before they go to the Board.

Most requests go to the Board as Consent Agenda items grouped already for vote, because they have been approved by the Site Council already.  Thus, for parents who want to get more involved in the decision making process of the school, the Site Council is the place to effect change.


Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at 3:30pm in the Library located in portable 175. Spanish-English translation is available.
