• School Site Council

    SPaS court and community schools must have a School Site Council to represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in the school governance process. The School Site Council exists to:

    • Review and analyze student achievement data,
    • Gather community input,
    • Help develop the Balanced Scorecard/Single Plan for Student Achievement (BSC/SPSA) and the school site budget, and
    • Monitor the implementation of the plan and budget.

    School Site Meetings

    As of January 2022, the Court and Community Schools’ Site Councils will be
    combined for the reminder of the 2021-22 school year; per Education Code 65001 as one or
    more of the following conditions are applicable:

    1. Schools with a common site administration may operate a shared SSC if the school site
      has a pupil population of less than 300 (EC Section 65001[a]); or

    2. Up to three schools with a combined pupil population of less than 1,000 may operate a
      shared SSC if the schools have at least one of the following characteristics: a shared
      campus or geographic proximity to one another with similar pupil populations (EC
      Section 65001[b]).

    3. Pursuant to EC Section 65001(c), the composition of the shared SSC shall have
      representation from each group as required in EC Section 65000(c).

    This decision was to ensure that our Court and Community Schools’ Site Council meet the
    required School site Council Composition for Schools which states:

    1. The principal of the school or his or her designee; classroom teachers employed at the
      school, selected by classroom teachers employed at the school; and school personnel
      employed at the school who are not teachers, selected by school personnel employed at
      the school who are not teachers. The classroom teachers selected pursuant to this
      subparagraph shall constitute a majority of the persons selected pursuant to this
      subparagraph. (EC Section 65000[c][1][A])

    SPaS School Site meetings are open to students, parents, and the public. We welcome your involvement!
