School Site Council Committee

Background

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 2022-23 School Year

Please consider joining the 2022-23 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.

There will be four available 2-year positions open and one 1-year alternative position available next school year. Please consider attending this Wednesday's Site Council Meeting if you are interested: Wednesday, March 16, 4:00-5:30 p.m., Zoom. We will begin actively encouraging parents to apply in March to allow for a Spring slate for voting in Site Council Elections this April.

We hope to see you this Wednesday
