The Role of a SSC

What is a School Site Council?

SSC’s make decisions at the school site regarding site programs and categorical programs, in addition to helping to develop the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  SSC's are composed of parents, community members, and school personnel. The SSC helps guide decisions on academic instructional programs and all related categorical resource expenditures for a school.


A SSC is a school-community representative body made up of:

  •     Principal
  •     Teachers 
  •     Other School Personnel
  •     Parents or Community


Single Plan for School Achievement Plan

The purpose of the Single Plan for School Achievement (SPSA) is to raise the academic performance of all students to the level of state achievement standards.

Local Control and Accountability Plan

The LCAP is a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Each school district engages parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans. The plans describes the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals. The LCAPs focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
