School Site Councils

Each school has a site council consisting of teachers, staff, parents, and administrators. The members of the site council are chosen annually, and students may also participate at the secondary level.
Each site council is responsible for specific tasks such as the preparation of a School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), which typically aligns with the goals of the district's Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The school site council also functions as a forum for the discussion of issues specific to the school it serves. 
While each site council develops its own schedule, procedure, and format for these discussions, topics typically include the following:
  • Curricula adoption
  • Implementation of recently adopted curricula 
  • Standardized test results
  • Other issues related to curriculum, programs, and services  
  • Professional development activities
  • Acquisition of equipment
