School Governance Councils

School Site Council

School Site Council (SSC) is a federally mandated council where a group of parents, students, teachers and administrators examine the use of the Title 1 budgets. This groups meets monthly to determine how the instructional program is being supported by these supplementary funds. This group allows for further collaboration across the stakeholders about the instructional goals for the school community and regularly reviews Bravo’s program effectiveness in alignment with the district LCAP requirements to make decisions regarding allocation of categorical funds.  The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) goals which are aligned with the district LCAP and along with included data are regularly referred to in SSC meetings as a basis for decision making.

  • The school’s program for English learners.
  • The school’s needs assessment.
  • The school’s annual language census or R-30.
  • Efforts to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
 
Composition, Elections and Training

The percentage of parents of English learners on the committee must be at least the same as that of English learners at the school.

Requirements for ELAC elections include:

  • Parents/guardians of English learners elect parent members of the school committee.
  • The parents/guardians are provided the opportunity to vote for committee members.
  • Each school committee shall have the opportunity to elect at least one member to the Council of Council Committee.
