School Site Council

School Site Council (SSC)

The School Site Council is the major part of the overall decision-making structure at our school. Participants are elected by their peers (parents, principal, teachers, and other school staff) to represent the members of a school community. Their primary role is to guide the Site Planning Process to ensure that the needs of all students are specifically addressed in the School Site Plan. In addition, the School Site Council must oversee the site-based budgeting of categorical funds and the Weighted Student Formula process. Specific tasks of the SSC are:

  • Review and analyze student data.
  • Develop the Academic Plan and school site budget.
  • Monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the academic plan on an ongoing basis.
  • Approve and recommend the plan to the school board.

However, even if you are NOT an elected member of the SSC, you are invited to come and participate in this decision making process. Please check the calendar for meeting dates.
