What is School Site Council?
School site counsel (SSC) is composed of the principal, three teacher representatives, one school-classified employee and five parents of the school's students. Each member serves a two-year term. The SSC has regular meetings the last Wednesday of each school month in the school library and are open to the public.
The purpose of SSC is to develop a single-school plan for student achievement. This plan helps determine/address how funds will be used to improve academic performance of all students. The plan also identifies how the school will evaluate the progress to these goals. Examples of appropriate expenditures include specialists such instructional assistants, computers, software, teacher in-service and stipends for extra teacher work.
Another responsibility of SSC is to review, monitor, evaluate and write the school safety plan for each year. We will be developing further guidelines for Ladera's Safety Plan and the CVUSD Policy and Procedures for visitors/volunteers on campus. The Student Emergency Comfort Kits that were available at the beginning of the school year were implemented by the SSC.
Over the next year the SSC will be revising/updating our school vision. We hope to use this to guide us in developing a plan for the next three years. The district vision is High Expectations, High Achievement. We hope to be this concise.
