School Site Council

California Education Code 64001 requires districts receiving state, federal and other applicable funding through the Consolidated Application (ConApp) process ensure that participating schools prepare a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SPSA is a blueprint to improve the academic performance of all students to the level of the targeted performance goals of the Academic Performance Index (API), the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measures, and the LAUSD Performance Meter. Pursuant to California Education Code 52852, every school operating a school-based coordinated program shall establish a School Site Council (SSC) as the decision-making council for all programs funded through the ConApp. Further, the SSC is responsible for all federal parental involvement mandates, specifically, the school level Title I parent involvement policy, Title I parent-student compact, and the development of the Title I parental involvement budget, and the proposed expenditure of all categorical funds.
