School Site Council Committee


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.

School Site Council Is Seeking Parents to Serve for the 2021-22 School Year

Please consider joining the 2021-22 César Chávez Elementary School Site Council, the insights of parents are critical to our work.

The Site council is an official group that includes the school Principal, Teachers, Classified Staff and Parent representatives.  Our main responsibility is to develop and monitor the School Site Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).  This plan identifies the school’s strengths, lays out strategies for making school improvements and recommends how the school should use certain federal and state money to best support our students.

The Site Council meets on the third Wednesday of each month from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.  Spanish-English interpretation is available (RSVP interpretation needed 72 hours prior to meeting date).  Key qualifications for serving on the Site Council are that you must be able to attend the meetings, work well with a team and reflect on the experiences of all our students.  Spanish-speakers are especially encouraged to apply.  Parent representatives are elected for a term of two years.  This year we will vote to fill one parent representatives and one parent alternate.  If you would like to be a candidate, please fill out the Google form below and submit by May 17, 2021.  Applicant Announcement and Ballot with Applicant Statements will be distributed to families on May 19, 2021.  Voting will close on May 28 and elected members will be announced on June 2.

Thank you for your consideration!
