SCHOOL SITE COUNCILS (SSC)
California law requires that each public school will convene a school site council which is charged with development and approval of the school's improvement plan.
Who is on a school site council?The law defines the role of each member of the school site council. At all levels the group shall include:
The number of non-school staff (parents, students and community members) must equal the number of school staff. A staff member of the school who is also a parent cannot serve as a non-school staff member. Of the staff members, the majority must be teachers. For example, if there are two non-teaching staff members and the principal on the site council, there must be at least four teachers on the council and 7 parents, students or community members.
- the school principal;
- teacher representatives elected by fellow teachers;
- other school staff elected by their peers;
- parents of students currently attending the school and selected by other parents;
- and, in secondary schools, student representatives selected by other students.
