School Site Council (SSC) & English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC)
The name School Site Council (SSC) comes from Assembly Bill 65. The Council consists of voting members, with parents and staff equally represented. The SSC includes our principal, three teachers, one staff personnel, and five parents/guardians/community members. The purpose of the School Site Council is to provide a method for collaboration and input among representatives of those involved in and affected by the school program.
The School Site Council (SSC) assists in developing and reviewing a School Site Plan, continuously reviewing its implementation, assessing the effectiveness, and reviewing the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) based on the state’s LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula).
The ELAC (English Language Advisory Committee) is a group of English Learner parents and community members who advise and assist schools in making important decisions related to services for English Learners. The California Education Code requires an ELAC be formed at schools with more than 20 identified English Learners.
