School Plans for Student Achievement

At the beginning of each school year, school site councils prepare individual School Plans for Student Achievement (SPSA).


The purpose of the SPSA is to coordinate all educational services at a school. The SPSA describes a school's programs and identifies measurable goals to improve student achievement.


It is developed with an understanding of the root causes of academic challenges for students and identifies and implements research-based, instructional strategies to raise the achievement of students who are not yet proficient by state standards. 


The State of California requires site council at public schools to prepare a SPSA annually for review and approval by the local school board.


At SSFUSD, each SPSA includes goals related to curriculum development and learning.
