School Site Council


California Education Code 52852 requires that a school site council shall be established at each school that participates in Title I or LCFF supplemental/concentration grant funding.   The school site council shall be composed of the principal and representatives of: teachers selected by teachers at the school; other school personnel selected by other school personnel at the school; parents of pupils attending the school selected by the parents; and, in secondary schools, pupils selected by pupils attending the school.

School site councils meet regularly to complete the following activities:

  • Elect officers
  • Develop/revise by-laws (optional)
  • Advise the annual revision of the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)
  • Recommend the annual revisions to the SPSA for Board approval
  • Approve revisions to the site categorical budget and SPSA
  • Monitor the implementation of the site categorical budget and activities in the SPSA
  • Annually evaluate the activities in the approved SPSA
