School Site Council (SSC)

Purpose of School Site Council

The School Site Council (SSC) is a school communities representative body, made up of school staff, parents/community members, and at the secondary level, students.

California Education Code 52852 requires that a school site council shall be established at each school that participates in Title I or LCFF supplemental/concentration grant funding.  The school site council shall be composed of the principal and representatives of: teachers selected by teachers at the school; other school personnel selected by other school personnel at the school; parents of pupils attending the school selected by the parents; and, in secondary schools, pupils selected by pupils attending the school. At ALS, the School Site Council meets monthly.
