School Site Council / Site Governance Team (SSC/SGT)

The SSC/SGT is an elected body of parents, staff and community members.

As a body, the SSC is responsible for developing and monitoring the site plan to ensure the programs and budget are directed toward improving the achievement of all students. The SSC also oversees all the categorical funds such as Title I, Second Language and GATE. All schools are required to have an SSC.


The SGT provides shared decision-making regarding personnel and hiring to improve student achievement.

Elections for parent positions are held every year (list of board members here), and we hope you will give serious consideration to running for one of the vacancies. The commitment is for two years. 

For more information about SSC/SGT, as well as access to Meeting Dates, Meeting Agendas and previous Meeting Minutes, please go to the SSC/SGT section of the school site.


Section 5 of Article IX of the California Constitution guarantees students a “free public education.”
