School Site Council (SSC)

The School Site Council (SSC) is a representative body, comprised of elected or volunteer members who represent parents, students, faculty, staff and the local community. School Site Council composition, functioning and responsibilities will follow regulations established by the California Department of Education. The School Site Council will work with school leadership to discuss, develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets.
