• The School Site Council (SSC) is intended to be a decision-making body that represents all stakeholders of the school community. The school principal, teachers, other school personnel, and parents/grandparents make up this group. Their primary responsibility is to identify common goals and assist the leadership team in establishing a plan to achieve the goals. The key to a successful SSC depends upon a good working relationship among all members of the Council. Each member of the Council shares their unique perspective and knowledge of the school’s needs, as they affect all students, during SSC meetings. The principal and teachers contribute background knowledge in instructional practices; parents provide insights on how effective the school is working and how well their children understand their assignments, and support staff also offer insight on the range and effectiveness of learning opportunities available. Other personnel at the school, such as counselors, instructional aides, and clerical staff can share insights on how the school can function to support student learning.
