School Site Council Information 2015-2016

What is a School Site Council, and what do they do?


School Site Council (SSC) is comprised of elected members from both school staff and parents/community members. SSC members learn about Rivera student achievement data, help to develop the School Plan for Student Achievement, learn about the effectiveness of the school plan and approve school plan revisions and budget expenditures for categorical programs. SSC members also help the school community by encouraging parents to participate in school programs.

What is the purpose of School Site Council?

It is a means for parents to receive information on programs and their effectiveness, to become aware of student academic progress and to participate in a leadership role in our school community. By participating in SSC, parents have an opportunity to learn more about educational themes and issues, and have an active voice in our educational process.

If you have any questions about School Site Council, please call 697-5757 or stop by the office. Meetings are held on Thursdays at 2:45 p.m. in Room 5. Meetings for 2015-2016 are on the following dates: 10/22/15, 12/17/15, 01/28/16, 02/18/16, 03/24/16,  05/26/16.

“Parent involvement is most successful when it is viewed, practiced and promoted as a partnership between the home and the school.”
