School Site Council

Single Plan for Student Achievement



Public schools in California are required to have a School Site Council (SSC) to serve as the school community’s representative body in leadership and decision-making. The School Site Council’s primary responsibilities include analyzing and evaluating the academic achievement of all students in the school and developing, approving, and monitoring the school plan and all related proposed expenditures.

SSC meets monthly on the third Thursday of the month at 3pm in Room 208. A calendar of meetings will be presented at the first SSC meeting of 2017-2018 school year.

The Sweetwater High School SSC is composed of members ensuring equal representation between the parent/community members and the school staff members as follows:

Parent/Community Members and Students:

  • 3 parents/community members
  • 3 students

Staff Members:

  • 4 credentialed teachers (three classroom/ one non-classroom) and 1 alternate
  • 1  (classified: instructional assistant, secretary, campus security, etc.) and 1 alternate
  • 1 principal


The School Site Council (SSC) is composed of staff, parents and students elected by their peers. The SSC oversees the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and  carries out the following duties:

  • Obtain recommendations for, and review of, the proposed SPSA from all school advisory committees
  • Develop and approve the SPSA and related expenditures in accordance with all state and federal laws and regulations
  • Provide ongoing review of the implementation of the SPSA with the principal, teachers, and other school staff members
  • Make modifications to the SPSA whenever the need arises
  • Annually (and at each semester, trimester, etc) evaluate the progress made toward school goals to raise the academic achievement of all students
  • Carry out all other duties assigned to the SSC by the district governing board and by state law
