The California Education Code requires that public schools establish School Site Councils to oversee the development, monitoring and revision of a continuous improvement plan for student achievement at the schools. Developing and implementing the plan, called the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), and monitoring progress toward the goals of the plan are the main responsibilities of the Site Council.
Actions required of the School Site Council include:
- Seek advisory committee input
- Reaffirm or revise school goals
- Review improvement strategies and expenditures
- Approve and recommend SPSA to local school board
- Monitor implementation of the SPSA
- Measure effectiveness of improvement strategies
