School Site Council
What is SSC?: school site councils are mandated by the State of California. The basic principle underlying the establishment of the council is that those individuals who are most affected by the operation of their school should have a major role in the decisions regarding how their school functions. This involvement occurs through the development, monitoring, and assessment of a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), including a budget, which reflects and supports the plan.
Who is the SSC?: The council is comprised of the principal, teachers, other school personnel, parents or members of the community, and students.
SSC Responsibilities: The basic role of the SSC is to plan, monitor, and evaluate the activities and expenditures for the Single Plan.
The SSC has the opportunity to create an effective plan based on the unique needs of its school site. Each council member's input and perspective is important to the success of a SSC as he/she represents that portion of the school community.
SSC Meetings: The council currently meets once a month. Each council decides the frequency, time, and dates for SSC meetings.
ALL SSC MEETINGS ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. CURRENT AGENDAS CAN BE FOUND ON THE CABRILLO WEB-SITE, AND POSTED ON THE OFFICE WINDOW 72 HOURS PRIOR TO THE MEETING.
