School Site Council (SSC)

The primary task of the School Site Council is to ensure that the school is continually engaged in identifying and implementing curriculum and instructional practices that strengthen the core academic program while ensuring that students have access to and are successful in that program. The School Site Council is also responsible for updating and implementing the Single Plan for Student Achievement and allocating resources on an ongoing basis.
