2020-21 School Site Council: 4 parents needed, Application available on August 9, 2020

Per the California Education Code, each elementary school Site Council is responsible for the following:

  • Review and approval of the Comprehensive School Safety Plan
  • Review and approval of the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), which serves as a single year strategic plan for the school
  • Review and approval of the school's allocation of Local Control Funding Formula ("LCFF") funds
  • Development of a site level parent involvement policy

The Site Council consists of 12 members and one alternate, as specified in the Site Council bylaws. The members are the principal, five staff members (certificated and classified), and six parents. (A seventh parent serves as an alternate.) Peers must select staff Site Council members in a democratically conducted process. Cesar Chavez parents elect Parent Site Council members in a school-wide election for two-year terms, staggered to ensure all parent representatives are not elected in the same year.

2020-21 Climate Committee: 1 parent needed to Co-Chair, contact Kadee Russ if interested, knruss@gmail.com

A School Climate Committee is made up of parents, staff, and students who work with the principal to understand how it feels for the different students and families to be at a particular school. Using survey and other data, with the Principal, the Climate Committee develops ways to promote the District's core values of student connectedness, and respect and a positive learning environment for all. This can include anti-bullying programs, parent education, student-led activities, and much more. For more information on School Climate please visit the Climate Services website.

Last Day of School – “Sí se puede” parade

Thanks to all the parents and students who drove, biked and walked on Anderson Road Friday morning as our CCE Staff cheered “Sí se puede” to you to show their appreciation for the dedication, efforts and support you demonstrated during our school closure.
