Parent Committees

We have a variety of organizations that involve parents and school staff in our school.

School Site Council
The School Site Council is a shared decision making body composed of parents, staff, and classified personnel. School Site Councils are required by the State of California to oversee our school's Site Plan and Title I budgets. Our Council identifies needs for academic programs and sets budgets. Its main responsibility is to prepare and monitor the School Site Plan. This plan reflects our school's educational goals and its main strategies for achieving those goals for all of its students. The Site Council is also responsible for approving our school's budget for the compensatory education funds we receive each year. These funds are allocated by the state and federal governments to serve the educational needs of low-income children. Members of the School Site Council are elected to two-year terms with parents, staff and classified personnel electing their own representatives. For more information on the School Site Council, contact the office.

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)
When a school has 21 or more English Learners, it must form an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The primary purpose of ELAC is to advise the school principal and school staff regarding the instructional programs and support services for English Learners. ELAC is also responsible for advising the School Site Council (SSC) and reviewing the Site Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The school is responsible for training and providing appropriate support to all ELAC members. By doing so, ELAC members will be well-informed and thus be able to communicate meaningful input and advice to the school about its efforts to educate English Learners. If you'd like to get involved in the ELAC, contact the office. For more information on the district's English Language Learners program, visit the Office of Language Acquisition website.
