The legislative intent of School Site Council (SSC) is that education should be a joint effort of parents, teachers, administrators, and other school staff - those whose common goal is the success of all students, as well as having the most direct and on-going contact with those students.
Aspen's SSC is made up of the principal, 3 teacher representatives, one classified staff member, and 5 parents. The parents are elected and serve for two year terms. The teachers choose to serve as their adjunct duty and the classified staff member is also selected by other staff members.
The SSC members help to determine the focus of the school's academic instructional program and areas of need. These areas of need are then written into Aspen's Single School Plan. The SSC also oversees the budget allocations given from state funds.
