A School Site Council must be established at all SFUSD schools. The elected members of the SSC represent parents, students, community members,and school staff in school governance. By state law, the SSC must oversee the site-based budgeting of categorical funds.
In SFUSD, the SSC plays a broader role in developing the Strategic Plan and overall school site budget. The SSC is expected to: 1. Review and analyze student data; 2. Solicite community input; 3. Assist the principal in developing the Strategic Plan and school site budget; 4. Monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the Strategic Plan on an ongoing basis; 5. Approve the Strategic Plan and school site budget before it is submitted to the District for final review and approval.
