School Site Council & Advisory Committee

SSC Agendas and Minutes

The School Site Council (SSC) and School Advisory Committee (SAC) need you!

Each school must have an elected School Site Council (SSC) to represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in the school governance process. The SSC has a number of important responsibilities, including:

  • Reviewing and analyzing student achievement data,
  • gathering community input,
  • helping develop the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and the school site budget,
  • and monitoring the implementation of the plan and budget.

The elected members of the SSC represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in school governance. By state law, the SSC must oversee the site-based budgeting of categorical funds and the development and monitoring of the SPSA. The SSC is expected to:

  • Review and analyze student data.
  • Solicit community input, including feedback from the ELAC.
  • Assist the principal in developing the Academic Plan and school site budget.
  • Monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the SPSA on an ongoing basis.
  • Approve the SPSA and school site budget before it is submitted to the District for final review and approval.

The SMS school site council meets 4-5 times a year for about an hour each time.   If you have questions on the SSC, contact James Dennis at or at the main office.
