School Site Council (SSC)

The SSC is an elected decision-making group comprised of parents, community members, site administrators, teachers and other staff. At the secondary level, students are included. The SSC has an ongoing responsibility to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate the site plan. The SSC also oversees all the categorical funds such as Title I, Second Language and GATE. All schools are required to have an SSC. Contact your site administrator or SSC chair if you are interested in joining.

Hawthorne 2016-17 School Site Council Information

The California Department of Education and the San Diego Unified School District have established codes and policies that guide School Site Councils. Under California Education Code Section 52852, School Site Councils are required for any California schools that participate in specified categorical programs, including Title I as well as, but not limited to the School Improvement Program, School-Based Coordinated Program, Economic Impact Aid/Limited English Proficiency, Economic Impact Aid/State Compensatory Education.

The SSC is responsible for overseeing the development of the school’s Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) in relation to the supplemental categorical programs and associated funding. These funds are used to supplement the core programs already provided by the district in order to close the achievement gap for underperforming student groups as outlined by the guidelines of the categorical programs.
